Please consider supporting one of the Media Labs' funds:
Director's Discretionary Fund: Gifts to provide the Director of the MIT Media Lab flexibility to support existing and emerging priorities and promising new research directions.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Fund: Gifts to support The MIT Media Lab's efforts to create an inclusive, safe, and supportive environment that equips all community members with the opportunities to thrive.
Student Support Fund: Gifts of alumni and friends to provide support to students in the MIT Media Lab.
Cultivating Creativity Fund: Gifts to provide support to the MIT Media Lab’s students + faculty working to develop a new generation of tools, methods, and experiences to inspire and support creative thinking, creative expression, and creative computation.
Decentralized Society Fund: Gifts to provide support to the MIT Media Lab’s students + faculty conducting research on Web3 and decentralized technologies and digital public infrastructure.
Future Worlds Fund: Gifts to provide support to the MIT Media Lab’s students + faculty working to create transformative technologies, experiences, and systems that address challenges of sustainability, climate change, and energy.
Leadership gifts (generally gifts of $100,000 or more) may be for current use for building the endowment of the Media Lab or for establishing an endowment for a faculty position, a graduate fellowship, a particular area of research, or for the Media Lab generally, to perpetuate the overall mission and vision of the Lab. Gifts that combine current use and endowment support are possible and encouraged to make a difference both in the immediate and long term.
The Media Lab’s endowment constitutes a portion of MIT’s greater endowment and benefits from its investment performance. The principal of the Media Lab’s endowment (the amount that the donor has contributed) is never spent but is allowed to grow over time, thereby providing a stream of income for years to come and to sustain the Media Lab’s distinct educational and research model.
