Hurricane Katrina: fundraising/donations




Coordinated fundraising

The final date for PSC collections for local aid organizations and the Red Cross is September 30. We will continue to accept donations to enable MIT students to work with remediation efforts in the Gulf area until January.

Checks can be made out to MIT, and donors who contribute more than $250 will receive an acknowledgement letter for tax purposes from the MIT Treasurer's Office. Donations can also be made online through the alumni association.

The PSC is interested in helping to plan and coordinate other efforts, so please let them know if you are planning an event. Contact Sally Susnowitz at or 617-258-7344.

Alumni donations

The Alumni Association has set up an online donation gift page to support the PSC Fellowships for Katrina Relief, which are in fact gifts to MIT.
