Begun in 1917, the Senior Campaign is a time-honored tradition that enables graduating students to leave their “mark” and give something back to UMass Amherst. Although the students will have graduated, the Class Gift will ensure that their class will not be forgotten.
By making a commitment to support UMass Amherst, donors are helping to ensure a great UMass Amherst experience for the next generation of students. Gifts help to increase the value of the UMass Amherst diploma, by helping to enhance all areas of campus, which leads to a better reputation.
Piggy BankIt is about students supporting the UMass Amherst community. By saving extra change – in the Phil A. Pig piggy bank – and contributing to the university, donors are helping to support a scholarship fund that will benefit current students, while showing their UMass Amherst pride!
In addition, students are able to designate where their Piggy BankIt gift will be allocated. They can choose their major, a registered student organization or any of the myriad of funds that survive because of the generosity of others.
A week of events and programs designed to highlight, educate and engage the UMass Amherst community about those who love and support UMass Amherst, and have given back to make it a better place. The week consists of several events and programs designed to show UMass Amherst the importance of giving back, and to thank those who have supported UMass Amherst through the year.
The UMass Amherst community is asked to actively engage in the thank you process, which will help strengthen the bond between giver and recipient.
