OCW gift challenge kicks off

Donations from our visitors play a huge role in supporting the work we do, and our two fundraising campaigns are the key times in the year when we ask our visitors for support.  We’ve kicked off our spring fundraising campaign with a special gift challenge:

This spring, we’ve been given a special challenge:

to encourage 700 users to donate to OCW in 36 days.

If we achieve this goal, we’ll receive a generous gift of $25,000! 

We’ve been tasked with this challenge by our OCW Gift Challenge Circle, a group of donors who strongly support MIT OpenCourseWare’s mission to make MIT’s teaching materials freely and widely available to anyone willing to empower themselves to teach, learn and innovate through our open resources.

Our donors believe in the power of open education materials that offer the potential to enhance lives, communities, and the world.

Your support is critical to the success of this challenge.

This is a participation challenge and so every person who donates counts toward our goal (and any donation, large or small, makes a difference)!

Please help us reach our goal by donating today and encourage your friends, colleagues and family to do the same.

Your donation supports not only our work, but it also demonstrates to our sponsors and grant-makers that OCW is an important resource for people who need open and free educational tools.

Thank you in advance for helping us reach our goal.

p.s. Your company might have a matching gift policy which is another great way to support OCW. To find out, please enter your employer’s name in the MIT matching gifts page.
