We know this is a stressful time. You might have found your ideal blocking group. You might even have managed all of the drama and fallout. Just for a minute, though, think about the worst-case scenario. You get Quadded.
Quadsurance is here to provide you some consolation in case you do. With a pool of contributions from other Harvard first-years, Quadsurance distributes to those who are quadded 2-4x their original donation.
currently in the pool
Collected funds will be distributed to all of the participants who get Quadded, proportional to their original contribution. For more information on the mechanics, see below.
given to charity
We don't take a transaction fee or make a profit, so we're donating 10% of the funds Quadsurance receives to the Phillips Brooks House Association's homeless shelters in Cambridge.
