MiddSTART is a micro-philanthropy site that helps students find the funding they need to explore their interests through creative, entrepreneurial, and innovative projects. It enables alumni and friends to combine a number of gifts to support a project that particularly appeals to them, and to follow the progress of the project through the website. 

Help support our community, students’ educations, research, and our future by giving a gift to any of the projects below.
