Annual Fund

arrow Created with Sketch.

We rely on the generosity of our supporters to fulfill our mission. Our gratitude to our many donors is matched only by the tremendous impact they are having on our mission.

Our success is made possible by the generous annual contributions of our supporters, members, alumni, and friends. Your gift provides unrestricted funding for Solve’s core work. For example:

  • $5,000 funds one innovator team to attend essential in-person programming on campus at MIT and, 
  • $25,000 funds the tailored, wraparound support programming for one innovator team for one year.

This broad base of unrestricted support includes gifts at all levels that together have a tremendous impact on MIT Solve and the global problems we are addressing together. Your investment in the MIT Solve Annual Fund will pay dividends for generations to come and we hope you will consider joining us in this important endeavor.
