ESG Alumni Events
ESG Alumni Get-Together, June 8, 3:30-6:00 p.m.
As part of the Tech Reunion Weekend (June 7-9, 2013), ESG hosted a get-together for ESG alumni on Saturday June 8th from 3:30-6 p.m. up at ESG. This was a chance for alumni to chat with other ESG alumni. As part of this get-together, we will did some brainstorming in a somewhat structured fashion from 4:30-5:30 about how to strengthen the connections between ESG alumni, as well as develop a program for ESG alumni who have internship or job possibilities for current ESGers or who want to become a mentor in our new alumni-student mentoring program.

ESG Alumni Mentoring Program

ESG Alumni Fundraising Drive
ESG staff and alumni have raised over $500,000 to date to support three ESG initiatives not funded by ESG’s base budget:
a. TA Training Program .
b. ESG Spring Seminar Series (http://esg.mit.edu/energy-initiatives/educational-initiatives-2009-2012)
c. Friday Lunch program http://esg.mit.edu/resources/friday-lunch-guide
The total cost of running these initiatives is $50,000/year which would require a $1,000,000 endowment. We have raised $500,000 so are half way there! We would like to raise another $500,000 by December 2016. If you’d like to contribute, go to our gift-giving site (https://giving.mit.edu/givenow/browse-designations.dyn?categoryId=CS,CSED). Your gifts will be credited to your MIT contribution. Remember, no gift is too small!
We have five recommended levels of gift giving:
Graduate Lizard (above $1,000)
Senior Lizard ($500-1,000)
Junior Lizard ($250-$499)
Sophomore Lizard ($100-$249)
Freshman Lizard (under $100)
If you pledge any amount over $100 for five years, you’ll be a wizard lizard! Special prizes for wizard lizards for donations over $250 for five years.
