Annual Fund Board

The MIT Annual Fund, established in 1940 to raise capital funds for MIT, has been the Institute’s primary source of annual alumni support for nearly 75 years. Having grown dramatically from $64,000 in 1940 to $47 million in Fiscal Year 2012, it is among the most successful annual funds in the country, and an ongoing resource for MIT.

Today’s Fund encompasses annual gifts from not only alumni, but also students, parents, faculty, staff, and other Institute friends. That so many others now participate in giving to MIT is a tribute to the annual generosity of generations of alumni, and a legacy of which all alumni can be proud.

The Annual Fund Board, appointed by the MIT Alumni Association’s Board of Directors, supervises and directs Annual Fund activities. Working with Alumni Association staff, it oversees the solicitation and collection of annual gifts for any MIT purpose; sets yearly Annual Fund goals and objectives; and monitors progress toward the achievement of those goals.
