Priorities

In our tenth anniversary year, as we look ahead to the next decade of cancer research at MIT, our focus remains on supporting the people, ideas, and technologies that can change the game against cancer.

Gifts that drive impact 

From every type of donor, at every level of giving, philanthropy fuels the Koch Institute’s high impact cancer research. We are currently celebrating our tenth anniversary year, a full decade since we formally debuted our new research facility and unique research model. As we embark on our next decade, we remain fundamentally committed to the exceptional people, transformative research approaches, and educational missions that define who we are. Supporting these priorities—people, research, and education—takes all of us, together, giving in the ways that feel right for each of us.  

Flexibility is essential
