Development Update

Thank you so much for your support in FY09! We have a great update to report! We made our goal! We raised $2.471 Million in FY09 for the McIntire Annual Fund, compared to $2.244 in FY08.

M.S. MIT Alumni participation increased by 12.5% from FY08 to FY09! My participation goal for FY10 is 37% and I am confident we can reach it!
