What to Support
Make a difference in the area you care about the most.
UMass Amherst is transforming lives every day, through inspired teaching, innovative research, entrepreneurial endeavors, and sustained community outreach. When you invest in the university, you are strengthening the commonwealth and its surrounding communities, and giving our students the tools and resources they need to build meaningful careers and become the changemakers of tomorrow. You may choose to contribute to an area where the need is great—like financial aid—or to a school, department, student group, or team that means the most to you. You can show your loyalty through recurring annual gifts, or guarantee the value of a UMass education for years to come through an endowment. Whatever you decide to support, your generosity will help us fulfill the mission we have pursued since our founding in 1863: to provide an affordable, high-quality education and improve the lives of our neighbors here in Massachusetts and around the world.
