The Community Service Fund (CSF) was established in 1968 by a vote of the faculty to provide financial assistance to support MIT students, faculty, and staff volunteers in community service initiatives.
How the Fund Works:
The CSF Board accepts applications for funding three times a year and makes three types of allocations:
• Grants to MIT students, faculty, staff, and retirees for their community service initiatives.
• Support for the work of local community organizations through an allocation distributed and overseen by the MIT Office of Government and Community Relations.
• Support for community service events and programs that promote MIT volunteerism through an allocation to the MIT Public Service Center.
Donate to CSF through the Community Giving at MIT’s online system.
