Mark April 29-30 on your calendar as a reminder to take part in the second annual UMassGives. UMassGives is an on-line giving campaign with the goal of inspiring thousands of UMass Amherst alumni, parents, students, and friends to support their favorite areas of campus in a burst of generosity during a limited time-frame. By participating, you may be able to help your favorite area of campus win one of the special challenge bonuses, which totaled $10,000 last year!
Last year, over 1,500 people made gifts during UMassGives, resulting in almost $85,000 in support for campus programs. Many people gave smaller, second or third gifts of the year during UMassGives because they wanted to join others in showing their support of UMass Amherst on this special day.
UMassGives was successful last year due in large part to our UMass Amherst Online Ambassadors who promoted UMassGives via emails, Facebook posts, and tweets with messages provided by the university. If you would like to help out this year by being a UMass Amherst Online Ambassador, contact Krista Navin at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
