With an international reputation for excellence, UMass Amherst is a community of unparalleled faculty, researchers, students, and alumni.  Our ten schools and colleges, robust athletics and fine arts programs, and comprehensive libraries reflect these strengths.  With your support, we will continue to enrich the many individuals and communities we serve.

Our goal is to garner private funding so that all students who wish to complete their education can, that we attract and retain talented students who will advance our research enterprise, and that those who seek additional enrichment can get it here.

Our faculty create an academic community where both undergraduate and graduate students are challenged to learn and opportunities for pursuing life-changing discoveries abound.

Integrating education, public service, and world-class research enables us to fulfill our mission to prepare citizens ready to have an impact on the world. 

As we rise to new heights in academic stature, attract more talented students and faculty, and perform more groundbreaking research, we must be certain our physical campus rises with us.

UMass Amherst's ability to attract talented students and faculty, sustain enriched programs, and lead the way to pioneering research relies on gifts of all sizes.
