There are many options for giving back to Baker House or to Baker-related people, but you have to tell MIT (the ol' alma mater) that you want your money to go to a specific fund, and not the “Unrestricted Funds” account.

  • M. Nafi Toksöz Fellowship Fund (3311750), which supports a Course XII graduate student
  • General Baker House Fund (2720364)
  • James T. Albrecht Memorial Fund (3647005)
  • The famous (anyone want a mailbox door?) Baker House Restoration Fund (3700200)
  • M. Nafi and Helena Toksöz Baker House Community Fund (3159601)

MIT's Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences (EAPS) recently created the M. Nafi Toksöz Fellowship Fund, an endowed fellowship in Nafi's honor. Nafi and Helena were our housemasters from 1969 to 1980.

The EAPS Department has already raised about $700K. But the goal is to raise $1 million in endowed funds, which will – in perpetuity – support at least one graduate student for one academic year.

The EAPS Department is hoping that students who were Bakerites during Nafi and Helena's time as housemasters will also help raise funds for this fellowship. They invite us to join in:

“…celebrating the achievements of Professor Toksöz by contributing to the M. Nafi Toksöz Fellowship Fund. Gifts in any amount are greatly appreciated. To give online, visit and enter the M. Nafi Toksöz Fellowship fund number 3311750 in the 'search designations' box.”
