Your Gift Makes a Difference.
From a monetary donation to volunteering your time to help a student, every contribution to SBS is vital.
A Difference for Students
SBS is a world-class institute, and we need your help to continue to offer excellent educational opportunities to the next generation. We encourage you to support SBS’s endeavors to develop the new minds that want to impact society for the better.
Some alums make an impact by joining the UMass Amherst Alumni Advisor Network, where they can provide mentoring to current students, give one-time feedback on their resumes, lead an informational interview to help prepare them for the job market, or offer an opportunity to shadow them on the job.
Others will join us on campus for one of many panel discussions, networking events, or in-class speaking opportunities.
Many have offered to provide students with internship opportunities, giving our students real-world experience and better preparing them for life beyond UMass.
And others contribute a financial gift, providing vital support for students in need of financial support with tuition, covering the cost of unpaid internships, or life-changing study abroad opportunities.
A Difference on Campus
We are constantly growing. Meaning, we continually strive for improved facilities to foster a high-quality learning environment and seek out the best faculty our fields have to offer. Many alumni choose to make a gift to support endowed professorships, modern facilities, and improved technology. These gifts help keep UMass on the map as one of the best research universities in the world. Learn more about giving at UMass.
Additionally, alumni may choose to directly support the department from which they graduated, and each department will have a unique set of goals or priorities that these funds will be put towards.
Many employers participate in a matching gift program, which will multiply the size of your contribution. Nearly 9,000 companies around the world participate. Check now to see if yours does.
