The WPI Tech Old Timers know the importance of philanthropy and alumni engagement in the life of the university. They take a special interest in supporting various WPI student groups with a portion of their annual membership dues.

Membership dues are normally $15 per person annually, and support student groups and speaker honoraria. As we recognize the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, there will be no member dues collected during the 2020-2021 program season. However, if you choose to support our programming, donations are welcome. Please make checks payable to “Tech Old Timers” and mail to WPI, Office of Alumni Relations, 100 Institute Road, Worcester, MA, 01609.
