2020-21 Fundraising Goal
Raised So Far: $20,263 out of $20,000
In a typical year, fundraising covers 80% of our competition budget.
With MIT only giving us $400 this year, we need more to cover tournament costs, provide materials to our students, and build community. Please consider donating and supporting our program!

We're Growing. But we need your help.
In 2015, we created MIT Mock Trial.
At the beginning, we had eight members. One team. We competed at Regionals and were eliminated.
Fast-forward to last year. We trained over 20 members. We fielded two separate teams and sent them to six tournaments in New York, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts over the span of two semesters. And we came a hair's breadth away from sending two teams to the National Qualifier.
This year, we've expanded our coaching staff. We've grown the program to nearly 30 members. And we've attended six tournaments in the first semester of 2020, alone.
We're ready for the next level. But we can't bring MIT's mock trial organization to Nationals without outside support. Help us reach our $20,000 funding goal so that we can focus on studying how to be better trial advocates - and never whether we can afford it.
Words of Support
I never imagined the impact [donating in the past] might have . . . I hope this allows you to achieve your goals."
Congratulations on your success in what sounds like a great program."
