What does it mean to support the MIT Press? It means that you are part of a growing circle of friends who are helping to connect the most credible and creative minds from around the world with a global reading public.

For over 50 years, the MIT Press has been a leading light in academic publishing and the only university press rooted at the intersection of science, technology, art, and design. Our donors are critical to our continued success. Your gift will support the publication of innovative new books and journals across the arts and sciences; champion advances in digital publishing; and develop new, more open models and technologies. 

We thank you for your support and enthusiasm and look forward to working with new friends in our commitment to the continuous reinvention of university-based publishing.
