Meeting the Power-of-Participation Challenge

More than 65 volunteers are reaching out to alumni who have earned undergraduate degrees in the past 10 years­–the MIT10–encouraging them to meet a challenge from MIT Alumni Association president Martin Tang, SM ‘72. Tang has offered to contribute $100,000 to support students at MIT–on one condition. The gift depends on raising the overall Alumni Fund giving participation rates for those who graduated from 1997 through 2006 by 50 percent over last year’s totals. Contributions of any amount count, but they need to be received by June 30. “Your donation–however large or small–could translate into a $100,000 contribution to MIT students,” says Martin Mbaya ‘00. “How can any of us not participate?”
