Opportunities for Giving


The Stockbridge School of Agriculture @ UMass Amherst requires a public-private partnership to maintain excellence. Like other public universities, UMass Amherst depends on state funding for basic operational needs. Private philanthropy is what sustains a world-class university and particularly, the Stockbridge School of Agriculture. Your support attracts renowned faculty, endows professorships, supports quality Learning Opportunities for students, and offers scholarships to deserving students. Your gift will make a substantial difference to our students and faculty, immediately and for the long term: for financial aid, new programs and endowed professorships, and improved technology. We invite you to "Invest in the Future" in creative, personally meaningful ways that will inspire and shape the future of the Stockbridge School of Agriculture @ UMass Amherst.
