Invest in EPoD

The work at EPoD is made possible through a large number of sponsored awards for specific projects, gift funding, grants from other centers at Harvard, and initial seed funding from the Harvard Kennedy School. We have been able to secure a high return in research funds from investing in our core team and activities. In fact, over the past 5 years, EPoD has leveraged its seed funding to generate a 30-fold increase in funds for research. We are actively seeking financial partners who are interested in playing a pivotal role in enabling the continuation and expansion of our work.

If you are interested in learning about opportunities to support EPoD's work, please email EPoD Director Deanna Ford.
