$0 Raised$450,000 Goal

Dear Friend and Colleague, Every year UMass faculty, staff and retirees unite to support the causes they care about through the UMass Amherst Community Campaign (UMACC). The campaign provides an easy and efficient way for us to make annual donations to multiple charities that are dear to our hearts. Please join us in this spirit and give to the 501(c)(3) charitable organizations of your choice through UMACC. UMACC is an employee benefit that makes setting up bi-weekly payroll deductions a breeze. Simply select your charities and pay by payroll deduction, check or credit card.  The UMass community  cares deeply about our friends and neighbors in need. Last year UMass faculty, staff and retirees gave $436,000 to more than 400 nonprofit organizations! We hope you will join us again in this endeavor!   Thank you for all that  you do every day for UMass and the world around us. Go you and Go UMass! Your UMACC Co-chairs,  Jackie and Sid

Great Reasons to Give through UMACC! It is a great way to connect with your co-workers and to help those in need.

It’s fun and easy!

It shows the local community that UMass cares.

It reduces administrative work for nonprofits and since over 80% of UMACC donors renew, it's a predictable form of income for them.

Your can give to several nonprofits at once.

Payroll deduction enables you to spread out your payments throughout the year.

It makes record keeping a breeze and things are easier at tax time.

Giving as a part of a community towards a common goal motivates people to participate, who would not donate otherwise. (For real!)

Where Your Donation Goes

It's a lot of work every year to process over 2400 donations and to pay 400 nonprofit organizations!

UMACC is fortunate to partner with CHC: Creating Healthier Communities, our Campaign Fiscal Administrator.

CHC's fee is only 6% of the donations that come in. CHC is a 501(c)(3) organization. CHC focuses on eliminating health disparities.

That means 94% of what you donate goes to the nonprofit(s) that you choose, and 100% of your donation goes to nonprofit organizations.

If you pay by credit cards fees will be deducted from your gift.

UMACC program expenses are paid by the office of External Relations and Community Events.
