Review past issues.
Women for UMass Amherst (WFUM) is a network of alumni that promotes the advancement of campus programs that provide access, support, and opportunity for UMass Amherst students, with preference to those projects that positively impact UMass Amherst women and their respective communities.
Women become members of the WFUM network by making a gift to any area of campus they choose, following their individual passion. Women may also contribute to a collective fund- the WFUM Fund—and have a voice in directing these pooled resources to good causes at UMass Amherst.
Structure and Leadership
WFUM is led by a steering committee of women donors who give at or above Leadership Circle levels and who want the opportunity to advise the WFUM initiative. The steering committee acts as leaders of this organization and philanthropic mentors to alumnae and friends who have the ability to assist the university with achieving its many goals.
