Giving Advocates

When you become a Haverford Giving Advocate, you join a committed network of alumni, parents, and friends to help spread the word about why supporting Haverford is so important.

Strong participation from alumni and leadership gifts from members of The 1833 Society are key indicators of Haverford’s vitality. Annual giving to Haverford provides budget-relieving support for financial aid, academic life and the facilities that support it, and programs that enrich the experience of every student—like the CCPA, the OAR, and Athletics.

Giving Advocates are provided the tools and training they need to encourage their peers to support Haverford, thank them for their generosity, and foster an active connection with today’s thriving Haverford community.

Whether your primary connection to Haverford is with your class, an affinity group, or as parents, there is a Giving Advocate role for you.


Annual Giving Steering Committee (AGSC)

The AGSC is responsible for leading comprehensive advocacy efforts, which strengthen the philanthropic relationships between Haverford and its alumni, parents, and friends through peer-to-peer outreach. The Annual Giving Chair oversees these efforts along with six vice chairs, each dedicated to setting and achieving program-specific goals in partnership with a network of Giving Advocates.

The AGSC is comprised of the following volunteer groups:
