Charity of Your Choice

Choose a local nonprofit that matters to you.

Has a local organization helped you or someone you know? Do you already donate to or volunteer at a local non-profit?

Community Giving at MIT can help. We provide convenient choices for giving a one-time or regular donation, and we make sure 100% of your gift goes to the charity you select. We make donating to local 501(c)3 health and human service agencies easy and impactful.

If there is a local charity or cause that is important to you, donating to that agency is a good way to give back in a personal and meaningful way.

MIT Community Service Fund

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

MIT volunteers work to address food insecurity and they teach, tutor, and mentor underresourced students through programs like the TTT Mentorship program. They encourage students' interest in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics through the BEEAM Project. They build girls' confidence and interest in STEM fields through the G.I.R.L. - Girl's Innovation Research Lab.

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.
