UMass Amherst Libraries


Will I receive a receipt for my contribution?

Yes! The UMass Amherst Foundation will send you a receipt shortly after you make your gift.

Will my contribution be tax-deductible?

Yes! All philanthropic contributions to UMass Amherst Foundation are tax-deductible.

Can I make my gift via PayPal or another e-wallet option?

Yes! At this time we are still working to add this functionality to all of our giving pages, but you can support any area of campus via PayPal (and soon-to-be Venmo and other e-wallets) on our main giving form.

Who should I contact with questions about my contribution?

Contact Krista Navin, Director of Annual Giving at 

When will my credit card be charged?

Your credit card will be charged immediately.

Can I support multiple areas of campus with one gift?

Yes, to make one gift that supports multiple areas of campus select the "Add a Gift to this Donation" drop-down if that option appears. If you don't see this option, select the "Other" option in the Fund Designation list and then provide the full breakdown of where you would like your gift to go in the Special Gift Instructions or Comments box on the donation page. If there is no "other" option in the Fund Designation list, you can still write in your gift breakdown in the comment box and we will be sure your gift is distributed to the areas of campus that you request.
