We did it! Thank you!

August 11, 2017

With 17 hours left in our campaign, we have reached 105% funded.  Thank you very much.

Your gift will send a strong message to the students when they arrive next month that their presence on the UMass Amherst campus is valued. The books we purchase for them with the funds will ease their transition into college life, and the fact that it was made possible by alumni, faculty, and staff is especially meaningful.

Please know how grateful we are for your support of Emerging Scholars students.


You. Are. Amazing.

A big thank you to those who have stepped up and contributed to the Emerging Scholars Book Fund so far.  We are currently at 60% of our goal, and we have 15 days left in the campaign. If you haven't already, please share this campaign on your social media accounts or through good, old-fashioned email.  It's important to let folks know that even donations of $10 and $25 will make a big difference for Emerging Scholars students.
