The PSFC is known internationally as a leading university research center for the study of plasma and fusion science and technology. Current PSFC activities are focused on creating a scientific and engineering base for the development of fusion power. We need your help to develop smaller, faster, cheaper approaches to fusion energy. Your partnership at any level is appreciated and important. To learn more about how your gift can make a difference, please contact our Development Officer, Caitlin Dockendorff at cdockend@mit.edu or 339-788-0498.

SPARC Fund

The SPARC Fund is expendable and supports students and faculty who are creating a scientific and engineering base for the development of fusion power. Gifts to this fund have high strategic impact by supporting people (students, faculty, and staff) and providing the team with the appropriate materials, equipment, and lab space needed to innovate the pathway to fusion power.
