UMass Amherst’s seventh annual 2-day on-line giving campaign, UMassGives, was a huge success! On April 29 and 30 the University came together to raise funds for many areas of campus including colleges, departments, and student organizations. The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences participated in a fundraising Power Hour, a chance to win bonus funds if an area can procure the most individual donations during that hour. We're glad to announce winning second place, receiving an extra $500 in bonus funds! We generated over $2,000 during our Power Hour alone! PBS raised $4,320 from 94 donors! That's almost double the funds we raised last year! We want to extend a heart-felt thank you to all of our donors for supporting our students' success!
Donations from UMassGives will support important initiatives and student activities such as:
- Career Fairs
- Undergraduate Research Symposium
- Conference Travel Awards
- Research Funding
- Student Clubs and Peer Mentoring
