Harvard Divinity Solutions to Poverty


United States


Harvard Divinity School is a nonsectarian school of religious and theological studies that educates students both in the pursuit of the academic study of religion and in preparation for leadership in religious, governmental, and a wide range of service organizations.

The Solutions to Poverty Conference was held at Harvard Divinity School and was a one-day conference held in 2007 and 2008. The goal of the conference was to bring together university students and faculty and community government and private-sector workers in a collaborative learning and entrepreneurial workshop, developing grassroots projects for revitalizing urban communities throughout Boston.

Mission Statement: Harvard Divinity School educates scholars, teachers, ministers, and other professionals for leadership and service both nationally and internationally. To help in building a world in which people can live and work together across religious and cultural divides, they strive to be a primary resource in religious and theological studies for the academy, for religious communities, and in the public sphere.


Our Connection:

Mission Grant. Believing in the power of collaboration, the Skees Family Foundation wanted to bring together students and faculty, nonprofit and community leaders, to see what social problems they could tackle by combining their ideas and resources. We contributed to each conference with the hopes of encouraging local, collaborative solutions to local issues.
