There are many ways for you to support the Institute for Digital InnovAtion through philanthropy. Our team will work with you to find the best fit for your philanthropic dollars and ensure your gift creates lasting impact. Below are some opportunities for strategic giving to support IDIA:


Naming Opportunities

Highlight your commitment though a major gift that displays your name (or that of your company or organization) prominently on a classroom, lab space, common area, meeting room, or other featured space in our new building.


Support IDIA with an endowed gift that will provide a lasting and reliable source of income in perpetuity. Endowments can help to ensure funding for programs, research, students or faculty, thus providing the resources needed for their success.


Gifts of appreciated securities will provide great benefits to IDIA and have tangible tax benefits.

Planned Giving

Legacy gifts represent sustainability for key academic and research programs as well as scholarship funds to help attract and retain students. These gifts provide benefits to future generations of Mason students — and to you and your heirs.
