Partner and favorite charities
The focus of Community Giving at MIT is to support local health and human service agencies, and we make every effort to facilitate the philanthropic priorities of MIT faculty, staff, and retirees who choose to make their charitable donations through MIT. Your designated charity will receive 100% of your contribution. MIT does not deduct any administrative or credit card fees.
You may choose to donate to one or more of the following.
- MIT Community Service Fund provides financial support to MIT students, faculty, staff, and retiree volunteers in community service projects. CSF also plays a crucial role in ensuring the continued success of vital Cambridge and Boston nonprofit organizations.
- United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley focuses on these impact areas: children, youth, families, and the Math Science and Technology Initiative. You may also designate your gift to the Community Impact Fund which includes 170 partner agencies.
- Your Favorite Local Charity — you decide which local 501(c)(3) health or human services agency to support. MIT faculty, staff, and retirees have selected 230+ different local health or human services agencies that address the large issues we care about or provide comfort or care on a more individual level. View the growing list of employee selected charities. Spotlight your favorite charity by making a contribution and we'll add it to the list.
