Amherst Community Land Trust (ACLT)

The Amherst Community Land Trust works to expand affordable family home-ownership in Amherst while working to stabilize our family-friendly neighborhoods.  Using a well-established community land trust model, the ACLT purchases the land under a house and leases it to the new owner, thus reducing the purchase cost and making it affordable to low or moderate income households.

UMass FTK (For The Kids) - Baystate Children's Hospital

UMass FTK (For the Kids) is the largest student-run nonprofit charitable organization at UMass Amherst. We raise money year round for Baystate Children's Hospital in Springfield, MA, for children and infants with debilitating diseases and health issues. Baystate is the only accredited full service children's hospital in the region, complete with its own pediatric intensive care unit, and receives little to no funding from the state. UMASS For the Kids raised over $200,000 over the course of the past academic year, and this year we are looking to raise more than $300K.

North Star Self Directed Learning for Teens

North Star teens are individuals moving forward in unique directions at a pace that is right for them. North Star is not a school. We do not offer diplomas, credits, or grades. Rather, North Star offers an alternative to school where teens learn in the way that suits them best.
