Help the spirit of public service flourish at MIT!
If 100 donors make a gift of any size to the PKG Center on Pi Day, March 14, an anonymous alumnus donor will make a $5,000 challenge gift, and an additional 25 donors gets a total of $6,500!
About the PKG Public Service Center
The Priscilla King Gray (PKG) Public Service Center taps MIT students’ unique skills and interests to prepare them to address complex social and environmental challenges. We educate students to collaborate ethically and effectively with community partners to engage in meaningful public service, today and in their lives beyond MIT.
Now in our 30th year, the PKG Center is redefining public service at MIT. Our work engages students in policy, philanthropy, social entrepreneurship, nonprofit governance, and more. In the 2017-18 academic year, 672 undergraduate and graduate students participated in PKG programs across 32 countries including a new Spring Break program focused on climate change in New England (pictured).
As we’ve seen student interest increase, we have struggled to meet this demand while maintaining the high-quality and educationally-enriching experience. Fifty percent of our annual funding comes from supporters like you, and those gifts are used directly for student programs like PKG Fellowships, IDEAS, and our IAP:Healthcare program.
Your gift on Pi Day, March 14, will support:
• Scaling and refining PKG programs to devote more time to students and communities without sacrificing operational excellence.
• Developing academically-aligned programs that reflect the rigor of MIT and utilize the skills of our students.
• Sustaining the best of our core programming.
Please make your gift on March 14 to foster the next generation of world-changing public service at MIT.
