What is UMassGives?
UMassGives is a 2-day online giving campaign using email, texts, and social media to encourage people to give to UMass Amherst. This year will be our 9th UMassGives. In 2021, nearly 9,500 people participated in UMassGives and they donated more than $1.7 million in support of over 300 different campus groups, centers, departments, programs, athletic teams, and more.
The Office of Annual Giving spearheads this effort, but the success of the campaign is due in large part to the hundreds of grassroots fundraising efforts all over campus.
When is UMassGives?
UMassGives begins at 12:01 am EDT April 28 and ends at 11:59 pm EDT on April 29.
How can I get involved early?
Whether you are a student, faculty, staff, or alum, and you are looking to help a group participating in UMassGives there are many ways you can get involved early to make this year’s UMassGives even more successful. Whether you’re interested in providing a match or challenge, helping to raise awareness for a specific group on campus, looking to make a video that can be shared on social media about why you give back during UMassGives, or whatever other way you are hoping to get involved the first step is contacting us to let us know you are interested.
Can’t wait until UMassGives to make your gift?
Your support is vital to our success, and if you can’t wait to make your gift until UMassGives we understand. You can support your favorite area of campus any day at www.umass.edu/give. Just remember, if you make your gift early it will not be able to qualify for any of the matches, challenges, or power hours happening during UMassGives.
