The MassChallenge Pledge
The MassChallenge Pledge is a personal, non-binding commitment to support MassChallenge with a gift that is meaningful and convenient for you.
You can pledge today and choose an amount now or later. Either way, your gift is deferred until you achieve a liquidity event that allows you to fulfill your pledge. You choose the amount, schedule, and how MassChallenge uses your future gift.
The pledge gives innovators who consider MassChallenge to be part of their founding or success story the opportunity to pay it forward to the next generation of entrepreneurs. Once you make the pledge, you join a community of likeminded MassChallenge founders and startup leaders committed to providing the next generation of entrepreneurs with access to the same resources and networks that were necessary to launch and grow your business.
MassChallenge is a non-profit that doesn’t take any equity from its startups while providing access to the vital resources, intentional partnerships, and global community they need to grow at no cost. Many entrepreneurs want to give back to MassChallenge, but their resources are tied up in their businesses. The MassChallenge Pledge allows you to publicly declare your intention to support the MassChallenge mission while keeping your finances flexible for where you are in the startup lifecycle.
Alumni who take the pledge benefit from lifetime access to:
- MassChallenge Pledge peer networking and events
- Complimentary signature MassChallenge events and exclusive event invitations
- Recognition as a leader in MassChallenge’s community
- The global MassChallenge ecosystem and networks
Tax Benefits: upon fulfilling your pledge, donations are 100% tax deductible to the full extent of the law.
Those who have taken the MassChallenge Pledge represent a remarkable group of MassChallenge alumni who are leveraging their future success to support the next generation of entrepreneurs. These leaders embody altruism and philanthropy as part of their entrepreneurial growth and encourage other alumni and MassChallenge community members to do the same.
