Gratitude from MCFAM

MCFAM is deeply grateful for the charitable donations and sponsorships we have received from individuals, alumni and organizations over the past year. All of their gifts have helped educate well deserving students in our undergraduate and graduate programs as well as our Machine Learning Summer Camps for high school students.
