Remember ESG… the small classes, the camaraderie, the informal and close-knit community, the late night lounge discussions, and the opportunity for educational innovation?

The generosity of ESG’s alumni and other supporters enables us to offer the kind of educational innovation that makes ESG so unique, exciting, and meaningful. While teaching the freshman general institute requirements (our core mission) is supported financially by MIT, ESG’s seminars and other educational experiments are completely funded from sources outside the Institute.

Your tax-deductible donations can provide funding for current educational initiatives, or be put toward a permanent ESG endowment.
