All of us at MIT are grateful for the outpouring of support from this one-of-a-kind MIT community. So many of you—alumni, students, faculty, staff, family, and friends—came together on Pi Day, March 14, and you met not one, but two, ambitious challenges: Because of your generosity, the Institute will receive a $314,159 challenge gift and an additional $50,000 bonus gift from two anonymous challenge donors.
When the Challenge website closed at 11:59 p.m., more than 8,400 had given $3.3 million online. We’ll continue to count the gifts made offline on March 14 in the days ahead and will report out the final tally when the gifts are officially processed.
Your commitment makes the work of the Institute possible, from scholarship support of MIT students to innovative programs to the departments carrying out world-changing research every day. You have truly fueled the future at MIT.
