The UMass Amherst Community Campaign (UMACC) is an opportunity for UMass Amherst employees to share in the spirit of giving in order to help those in need. Through UMACC, employees can donate to any nonprofit organization (any organization with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status), from human services to the environment, from helping children to supporting the elderly, from around the corner to around the globe. UMACC is the only authorized campuswide solicitation of UMass Amherst employees conducted on behalf of charitable organizations.
UMACC demonstrates to the community that UMass Amherst employees are committed to helping make the world a better place. Since 1998, employees have donated over $6.5 million to nonprofit organizations through UMACC.
UMACC is authorized under Massachusetts General Laws (chapter 180, section 17B).
