The MIT Campaign for a Better World

May 06, 2016

To the members of the MIT community,

At MIT, we pursue education, research, and innovation with a passion for serious impact. We have a record of transforming society for the better—and we are just getting started. As we look to the horizon, we see a future of important challenges and inspiring opportunities. I am pleased to announce that today we officially launch the MIT Campaign for a Better World to rise to those challenges and accelerate positive change.

We aim to raise $5 billion to amplify our distinctive strength in education, research, and innovation, and to give the brilliant minds and hands of the MIT community the fuel and the focus to make inspiring progress.

Each of us has an important role to play in shaping the future of MIT and the world, and I am privileged to join you in this work.
