The museum relies on the generous support of alumni and friends to realize its mission of making research and innovation accessible to all. There are many ways to give, and every gift counts!

We greatly appreciate the generosity of the donors whose contributions helped make this museum a reality, as well as those who supported us at our former location at 265 Massachusetts Avenue. Here’s how you can help:

MIT MUSEUM’S ANNUAL FUND provides critical unrestricted support to the museum and helps to advance museum exhibitions, collections and programs. Please consider supporting us through this fund.

INDIVIDUAL GIFTS may be made in the form of cash, securities, planned gifts, or other transactions. To make a gift or designate your gift to support a specific area within the museum, please contact Erin Genereux, Director of Development, Arts Initiatives.

CORPORATE GIVING enables companies to partner with the Museum to actualize our mission. Please consider a philanthropic gift or sponsorship from your organization. For more information or to give now, please contact Erin Genereux, Director of Development, Arts Initiatives.
