This year, the School of Architecture + Planning received a challenge from an alumnus who will give $20,000 to SA+P if 20 percent of the alumni make a gift this year.
What’s so important about 20 percent participation?
In addition to earning the challenge gift of $20,000, SA+P will join the other four schools at MIT in the 20 percent or more alumni participation category. Last year, only 17.3 percent of SA+P alumni made a gift, the lowest alumni participation rate of the five schools.
What will your support do?
Your gift will go to an unrestricted fund at SA+P that provides financial support across all the departments, centers, and programs in the School. Projects can range from travel assistance for students to underwriting special student initiatives, but they all have something in common – they desperately need funding in order to succeed.
Help us succeed!
Right now, we’re at 16.5 percent participation. To get to 20 percent will require 280 alumni to make a gift before June 30th. Every gift, regardless of size, counts. So be one of the weighty 280 and help SA+P receive the $20,000 challenge gift!
