8.  HOW TO DONATE TO MSRI

MSRI’s annual giving program supports all aspects of the Institute’s mission: Knowledge & Research, K–12 Education, and Public Programs & Initiatives. With your gift, you will become a member of the Archimedes Society. Members of the Archimedes Society receive  a set of greeting cards featuring the mathematician of your donation level, a copy of the biannual Emissary newsletter & recognition in the spring issue, reserved seating at a number of MSRI events, and an invitation to a reception during the annual Joint Mathematics Meeting.

The Museion Society, named after Musaeum, the Hall of the Muses in ancient Alexandria, recognizes our friends who support MSRI with gifts of $5,040 or more. Museion members enjoy all the benefits of the Archimedes Society, and they are invited to three exclusive dinners with lectures in the Bay Area and in New York. Giving levels of the Museion Society include Hypatia ($10,000+) and Euclid ($25,000+).

Planned Gift in the form of a bequest may enable you to make a substantial gift to the Institute, ensuring that MSRI remains strong in the future. Planned gifts may help reduce capital gains and estate taxes. Friends who include MSRI in their will or have made other stipulations for a gift from their estate become members of the Gauss Society and receive invitations to our Museion dinners and to a reception during the annual Joint Mathematics Meeting.

Please join us on January 11, 2015 at 5:30 pm for a reception during the 2015 JMM to learn more on how to support MSRI. Click here for more information and to register: https://www.msri.org/general_events/21229
