The Class of 2013 Old Chapel Fund will support the renovation and re-opening of the Old Chapel, providing spaces to display UMass history and special collections, as well as areas to host events and functions.
All seniors who make gifts of $100 or more by June 30, 2013 will have their names engraved on a permanent plaque that will be displayed in the renovated Old Chapel.
The UMass Amherst Foundation Board has agreed to match, dollar for dollar, all gifts to the Senior Campaign. This means that your $100 gift will yield $200 towards the Class of 2013 Senior Gift. What a way to double your support!
Have an honoree card sent to someone who made a difference in your undergraduate education. After making your gift, email Wesley J. Dunham with the name and contact information of your honoree, and we will send this card inscribed with the following text:
I have made a pledge in your honor to the UMass Amherst Senior Campaign. This contribution was made to acknowledge the difference you have made in my life during my successful journey through a rigorous undergraduate program.
Thanks! for your experiences and opportunities. Leave a lasting legacy, give something back, and help make a difference in the lives of future UMass Amherst students.
Enhance the value of your diploma. Your degree becomes more competitive as UMass Amherst grows stronger.
Support the immediate needs of the campus. Contributions from Seniors are allocated to projects such as the Isle of View renovation.
Increase our funding from corporations and foundations. These groups value the number of private donors, not only the amount of their contributions, when considering grants. Every contribution really counts.
It costs approximately $30,000 to educate each student on campus. Whether you pay in-state or out-of-state tuition, your education has been subsidized by alumni support.
Continue the Tradition. Class gifts are a tradition that began with the Class of 1917. The Class of 2013 is proud to continue this tradition of giving back to UMass Amherst.
