Show your support for UMass Architecture by making a contribution to our Designing Opportunity Fund this year during UMassGives!

UMassGives is UMass' annual 2-day giving campaign. Every year, the Department of Architecture raises money to support our Designing Opportunity Fund -- a resource for students who need some extra help paying for the high cost of studio and class supplies, or to do something a little "extra" to support their learning, like visiting a museum, or paying a competition fee.  These are hard times for many of our students and a little help can make a huge difference. 

This fund is supported entirely through donations and directly supports students in the Architecture Department. This year the first $1000 raised will be matched by the Architecture faculty!

Money raised will:

  • Provide mini-grants to architecture students struggling with the high cost of materials for design studio and class projects.
  • Help architecture students participate in site visits, field trips, research activities, community engagement, competitions, and conferences.

#UMassGives gifts of all levels are gratefully accepted. Thank you!
