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, MIT-IV Homeless Outreach, and Community Cooks. They ensure food security for children through the Prospect Hill Academy Thrive program. They teach, tutor, and mentor underserved students through programs like the MIT BoSTEM Scholars Academy and TTT Mentorship program. They encourage students’ interest in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics through the Improv-a-Do! Engineering Competition, and MIT Inspire. They build girls’ confidence through the MIT Women’s Initiative's STEM outreach.

Your gifts support these efforts and more. In 2017, the CSF awarded $92,500 in grants:

  • $30,000 to Cambridge nonprofits
  • $30,000 to the MIT Public Service Center
  • $32,500 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 community 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.
