60 years of illuminating publishing

Solutions to the world’s challenges have the most impact when they are effectively communicated and widely understood. We can change the world by enlightening minds—spreading knowledge in the form of new discoveries and bold ideas.

Sharing the mission of MIT, the MIT Press strives to bring world-changing knowledge to minds, hands, and hearts around the globe where it has the greatest potential for social impact. To ensure that we continue to push the boundaries of publishing for the public good for decades to come, we have established the MIT Press Fund for the Future.

Please contact Kathryn DeNitto (kdenitto@mit.edu), Sr. Development Officer, to discuss giving options available to you. Generous support of our MIT Press funds contributes to open access innovation, high quality design, and diverse voices in publishing initiatives to enliven communities, ignite debate, and spread new knowledge.
