Naming Opportunities

Are you drawn to the idea of establishing a program in which the next breakthrough in leadership or human development takes place? How would you feel if your name, or the name of a loved one, someday became associated with the work of a Nobel laureate at MIT?

A named fellowship, research fund, or classroom is a lasting gift to the Institute that permanently associates the name of the donor-or that of a family member, friend, colleague, or professor-with the Center. Named gifts also offer donors the opportunity of connecting with seminal events, at the Institute and around the world. They are often the culmination of a life-long commitment to philanthropy.

Naming opportunities are available at many levels of giving from funding a program or fellowship to a building project.

If you are interested in pursuing a naming opportunity, please contact the Center’s Director The Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi at 617.324.6030 (email: for more information.
