Mission

Women for UMass Amherst is a network established to educate, encourage, and inspire women – friends and alumnae –  to be avid supporters and philanthropic leaders engaged with the university.  Women donors who contribute to any area of campus are members of this key network.

Women become members of the WFUM network by making a gift to any area of campus they choose, following their individual passion.  Women may also contribute to a collective fund- the WFUM Fund—and have a voice in directing these pooled resources to good causes at UMass Amherst.

Structure and Leadership

WFUM is led by a steering committee of women donors who give at or above Leadership Circle levels and who want the opportunity to advise the WFUM initiative.  The steering committee acts as leaders of this organization and philanthropic mentors to alumnae and friends who have the ability to assist the university with achieving its many goals.
