With the help of parents, students, alumni, faculty and friends, we raised over $67,000 during the 2019 UMassGives campaign, placing us 4th in money raised across the entire campus. This figure more than doubled what we had raised during the previous two UMassGives campaigns combined. Thanks to your generosity, we were able to create the new Global Health Impact Endowment in the Department of Environmental Health Sciences. This fund will directly support the Institute for Global Health and enhance the practice-based training of our graduate students who have a keen interest in global health.
