Opportunities for Giving
UMass Amherst requires a public-private partnership to maintain excellence. Like other public universities, UMass Amherst depends on state funding for basic operational needs. But private philanthropy is what sustains a world-class university. Your support attracts and retains renowned faculty, keeps labs up-to-date and the library vibrant, and offers scholarships to deserving students.
Your gift will make a substantial difference to our students and faculty, immediately and for the long term: for financial aid, new programs and endowed professorships, modern facilities, and improved technology.
We invite you to lend support in creative, personally meaningful ways that will inspire and shape the future of UMass Amherst. Find opportunities for giving that match your vision by clicking on the list to your left.
