Grants received by the chapter are distributed between the chapter’s two current projects. Thus far, the chapter’s main source of revenue has been grants from Harvard University. This year, they have strengthened their relationship with larger funding sources like the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, the Phillips Brooks House Center for Public Service and Engaged Scholarship, and the Harvard Global Health Institute. They have been awarded one $8,000 and one $4,000 grant from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and $5,000 from the Harvard Office for Sustainability. In addition, they have raised $8,615 during a winter fundraiser.
