“MIT's impact on my life was so critical that I can't even imagine what I'd be doing or where I'd be without it. It is because of this and how well the MIT endowment is invested that I started giving back to MIT. I’m amazed that there aren’t more people taking advantage of these types of donations, especially since you can essentially invest in MIT in a way that helps you while supporting MIT.”

“Establishing a unitrust that’s invested alongside the MIT endowment not only allows us to benefit MIT, but it is also a sound investment. It makes sense to put money into a vehicle that provides a guaranteed benefit to the school we love, gets it out of our estate, allows a significant tax deduction, and still gives us an assured annual income during our lifetimes. ”
