UMass FTK (For The Kids) - Baystate Children's Hospital

UMass FTK (For the Kids) is the largest student-run nonprofit charitable organization at UMass Amherst. We raise money year round for Baystate Children's Hospital in Springfield, MA, for children and infants with debilitating diseases and health issues. Baystate is the only accredited full service children's hospital in the region, complete with its own pediatric intensive care unit, and receives little to no funding from the state. UMASS For the Kids raised over $200,000 over the course of the past academic year, and this year we are looking to raise more than $300K.

North Star Self Directed Learning for Teens
