Foundations

The mission of the Office of Foundation Relations (OFR) is to engage private foundations in the work of MIT in order to maximize foundation support to the Institute.  OFR works with faculty and senior leadership across all areas of MIT to cultivate relationships with and develop approaches to foundations that share MIT’s dedication to education and the practical application of research.  In fiscal year 2011, foundation support amounted to $132M, or 24% of all new gifts and pledges to MIT.
