OCW is celebrating 15 years of open sharing with the world! To honor the year we were announced (2001) , we need 2,001 people to donate by Monday, June 20th for our Spring fundraiser. So far, more than a 1,000 people have donated and we’re so thankful!

We still need more learners to donate to reach this goal. Here are some reasons you should donate to OCW (if you haven’t already).

“I am 53 and have been out of work for 5 years, struggling driving around the state, trying to self educate but as you know nothing replaces a degree. Every dollar I have has to stretch for food, heating fuel and travel money. I do appreciate the opportunity to a self educate put forth by the MIT OpenCourseWare and I am always praising MIT for their philanthropic efforts.” – John, USA
