Employee donations are the life force of CSF. These donations are carefully managed by a Board of Trustees that represents that MIT community, involving faculty, students, staff of MIT and Lincoln Lab, graduate and undergraduate students, alumni, and retirees for a three-year term.
The CSF Board accepts applications for funding three times a year and makes three types of allocations:
- Grants to MIT students, faculty, staff, and retirees for their community service initiatives.
- Support for the work of local community organizations through an allocation distributed and overseen by the MIT Office of Government and Community Relations.
- Support for community service events and programs that promote MIT volunteerism through an allocation to the MIT Public Service Center.
See the impact your contribution makes:
- $5 monthly donation = materials for 2 MITXplore lesson plans
- $10 monthly donation = 49 meals for homeless diners at Project Manna
- $25 monthly donation = 1 week of food, lodging, and activities for a Camp Kesem camper
- $100 monthly donation = 95 students’ school supplies at Tutoring Plus
Your donations are hard at work:
In the last 5 years, over 98% of every donation to CSF went to a community organization or project. Our only operating expenses are for hosting board meetings, paying for postage, copying, and printing. That is pretty hard to beat.
