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.
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+).
Unrestricted Gifts to the Endowment benefit MSRI in perpetuity. The Endowment is
MSRI’s savings account: your gift to the endowment will be carefully and
prudently invested to generate a steady stream of income. A gift to the
endowment helps to ensure MSRI independence in the future.
MSRI accepts Restricted Gifts to underwrite a project or a
postdoctoral fellowship temporarily through a Major Gift or in perpetuity
through a Named Endowment. We currently have six named postdoc fellowships.
A 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.
The Hilbert Society recognizes our most generous supporters whose leadership and commitment ensures MSRI continues to thrive as one of the world’s leading mathematics research centers. Annual membership is awarded to donors of $100,000 or more per year. Donors whose cumulative giving reaches $1 Million become lifetime members of the Hilbert Society.
Individuals can make a significant impact on the life of the Institute, on mathematics, and on scientific research by contributing to MSRI. Annual Fund gifts are recognized in the Archimedes Society. Planned gifts are recognized in the Gauss Society.
