Partners Wanted: Introducing the MITCS Innovators Circle

The successful implementation and ongoing sustainability of MITCS and its mission require collaboration with a large and diverse set of stakeholders and allies. To that end, the school has announced the formation of the MITCS Innovators Circle, a group of strategic partners supporting its mission through philanthropic sponsorships and in-kind service donations, and through industry-specific leadership and guidance.

“We’re not just looking for donors, we want stakeholders and collaborators who desire to make an investment in our work,” said Stephen Catanzarite, Acting CEO. “Members of our Innovators Circle will help us build a future of opportunity, possibility, and equity for the students MITCS serves.”

The MITCS Innovators Circle will help create and grow a network of skilled talent to build the social, cultural, and physical landscape of western Pennsylvania for generations to come. By underwriting, developing, and guiding the education and training MITCS provides, partners in the Innovators Circle will also share in the ideas, resources, projects, and programs developed by the school.

Membership in the MITCS Innovators Circle is available at a variety of levels of investment, each with different opportunities and benefits. To discuss becoming an Innovators Circle partner, please contact the MITCS Development Office, at
