New Atlas Application Supports Community Giving at MIT

Ease and versatility are hallmarks of the upgraded Community Giving application. The new tool, which you’ll find on the “About Me” tab of Atlas starting July 29, allows you to manage your Institute-sponsored charitable giving on an ongoing basis. As a contributing employee, you’ll be able to make donations and changes to your payroll deductions at any time during the year. You also will have the option of splitting a single payroll deduction among multiple charities.

The new application enables MIT employees to make one-time contributions via credit card or single deduction at any point during the year. MIT retirees, students and MIT contractors are limited to donating via credit card. “Any contribution can become effective immediately,” says Program Coordinator Traci Swartz, “and donations through payroll deductions can be specified to start when it works best for you. The system also gives you access to your giving history and lets you adjust split contributions whenever you want. It’s the click that connects your head and your heart to real needs in the community.”

Click here to use our new Atlas Application today! Your designated charity will receive 100% of your contribution. MIT does not deduct any administrative or credit card fees.
