Donors have many choices when deciding where to invest their philanthropic dollar.
Many of them choose to give to long established charities with philanthropic traditions ripened over decades, and for some, centuries.
Giving to a public university is novel for many, but the value of a dollar invested at a place like UMass Boston pays huge social dividends. Through partnering with a public institution, your charitable investment extends an already strong public enterprise.
That’s why we’ve created this blog. Through it we will educate people about the immediate impact that giving to public higher education can have on the lives of the university’s first generation college students and others as well as on vibrant research devoted to the common good.
When donors witness the impact even a small contribution makes, they find a fulfillment that is fresh and wonderful. Read our blog, respond to it, share ideas with us, so we can build a wave of new philanthropy to a place that is truly transforming lives, on campus, in our local communities, and far beyond.
We look forward to your response and participation.
