Be an OCW Sustainer


OCW sustainers provide some of our most loyal and impactful support. When you become a sustainer, your donation is automatically charged to your credit/debit card or PayPal account on a monthly or annual basis. You can set up a recurring donation in any amount through our secure online web form and make changes or stop your gift at any time.

By automatically renewing your gift, you help make a sustained impact on our daily operations, allowing us to innovate, improve, and enhance OCW at a steady pace.

Benefits of an OCW Sustainer:

  • You will be part of a community of supporters that makes OCW available to users everywhere to pursue their educational passions and learn.
  • You will never receive a solicitation request while you remain an OCW Sustainer.
  • You will be acknowledged on OCW's website as an OCW Sustainer.
  • As a thank you, you will be the first to receive news and updates from OCW leadership throughout the year.
Q: How does becoming an OCW Sustainer work?

A: Becoming a sustainer means your pledge will automatically renew each month or year. You can give a gift of any amount, and can specify how many payments you would like to fulfill with your pledge when you set up your gift online. For example, if you would like to donate monthly for the next two years, you would select “monthly” as your gift frequency, and enter “24” as the number of payments.

Becoming a sustainer is the best way for you to support OCW for the long-term.

Q: What if my credit card expires or changes?

A: If your credit card expires or changes please call the MIT Alumni Association at 617-253-0129 to update your payment information.

Q: How can I change or cancel my sustaining pledge?

A: You can change or cancel your sustaining pledge at any time, just call the MIT Alumni Association at 617-253-0129. Thank you for supporting OCW in this way!
