In honor of PiDay (3/14), SolveMIT is teaming up with the MIT 24-Hour Challenge On Pi Day 2019. If 6,283 MIT alumni, students, parents, and friends give to MIT on March 14, 2019, a generous anonymous alum challenger will give the Institute $314,159, fueling the future at MIT and around the world. By giving to Solve this Pi Day, you’ll help open the doors of a world-class institution to entrepreneurs from all corners of the world who represent the spirit of MIT.

As part of the micro- challenge, If MIT Solve receives 50 gifts today by 11:59pm ET, Solve members Putnam Associates, Red Carpet Capital Limited UK, and Kevin Xu will make a generous donation of $15,000 to MIT Solve! Donations are fully tax-deductible, and 100 percent of your contribution will go directly towards Solver support.

MIT Solve is a marketplace for social impact. They find tech entrepreneurs from around the world and broker partnerships across the community to scale their innovative work—driving lasting, transformational change.  Solve issues four Challenges each year to find the most promising Solver teams with solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. Solve then deploys its global community of private, public, and nonprofit leaders to form the partnerships these Solver teams need to scale their impact. Over the last two years, Solve and its partners have committed over US $7 million to 99 incredible Solver teams developing technology-driven solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. Putnam is a proud member of the SOLVE community.

In the spirit of MIT’s 24-Hour Challenge, we invite you to pledge your support for Solve’s programs by donating online.
