Established in 2003, the mission of the UMass Amherst Foundation (UMAF) is to support private fundraising on behalf of the faculty, students and facilities of the University of Massachusetts Amherst.  The Foundation is an independent, privately governed non-profit organization located on the Amherst campus.

UMAF provides a bridge between donors and the schools, programs, faculty and students that make up this university.  We help to match caring people with meaningful opportunities that support both UMass Amherst’s mission and their personal objectives.
