H2H8 Entry Membership
H2H8 membership is worldwide and open to all who concur with our Core Values. Anyone who meets basic qualification can join as a member with a minimum membership donation of $1,000. After your donation, you’ll join as a member of the H2H8 Pioneer Club, which is a community of H2H8 members and grant recipients. 90% of your donation will be used for the H2H8 Graduate Research Grant, and 10% for H2H8 operation support. Every $100 donated yields one member vote towards a Graduate Research Grant candidate.
How Your Donations Work
90% of all membership donations go into a trust fund called the “Humanity Fund,” which is used to fund the H2H8 Graduate Research Grant Program. The remaining 10% of membership donations support H2H8 operations.
For every $100 you donate excluding support fee, you’ll receive one vote towards a graduate research grant candidate. Voting will be by proxy unless specified by member. At the same time, as your donations accumulate over time you will qualify for different levels of membership. The minimum donation unit for membership is $1,000. There are no restrictions on how much and when you donate.
