Community Service Fund

Back the home team.

Our flagship program, the MIT Community Service Fund supports the efforts of students and your colleagues working directly with people in need.

MIT volunteers serve food at the MIT Soup Kitchen, Project Manna, and Community Cooks. They are counselors and mentors at Camp Kesem, a college student-run summer camp for kids with a parent who has cancer. They teach, tutor, and mentor underserved students through programs like Amphibious Achievement, Read to a Child, Tutoring Plus, ReachOut. They encourage students’ interest in math, science, and engineering through MITxplore, DynaMIT, Club de Ciencias, and the TTT Mentor Program; they build girls’ confidence through SHINE for Girls and the MIT Women’s Initiative.

Your gifts support these efforts and more. In 2016, the CSF awarded $89,500 in grants:

  • $29,000 to Cambridge nonprofits
  • $30,000 to the MIT Public Service Center
  • $30,500 to public service initiatives led by MIT students and staff

Let's keep the talent and energy at MIT flowing toward long-lasting solutions by working on the ground to make our city a better place for everyone.

If you want to help MIT minds and hands make a direct impact on our greater community, a donation to the CSF is the way to do it.
