Because of you!

February 29, 2016

Dear #GivingTuesday Donors,


Thank you so much for giving to UMass Amherst on #GivingTuesday! The Annual Fund Staff had a great time volunteering at Kate’s Kitchen in Holyoke, MA, where a noontime meal is served to anyone, no questions asked, 365 days a year. Because of you, we took part in the cooking, cleaning, and serving! As a group, we helped provide meals for over 130 members of the local community and gave 36 hours of volunteer time. Thank you for supporting UMass Amherst and our local Massachusetts community.

Thanks for your Giving Tuesday support!

Thank you! Because of donors like you, #GivingTuesday was a huge success. More than 486 alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends made a gift on December 1! 

You Gave = We’re Giving Back!  On Tuesday, students voted and chose Kate’s Kitchen in Holyoke, MA as the organization where Annual Fund students and staff will volunteer this winter as a result of your gifts.   

Thanks for joining with us to make a difference for our students, our university and our community.

We're almost halfway there!

December 01, 2015

We've got 182 gifts with 9.5 hours left to go! Share with your friends to help get us to our goal!

Over in the Campus Center, students and staff are giving as well as voting on the place where we should volunteer, and Kate's Kitchen, a soup kitchen in Holyoke is in the lead! 

Our way
of Thanking You


Increased volunteer time

EVERY donation will count towards the number of hours of volunteering the Annual Fund staff will contribute. More gifts=more hours of volunteer work!
