Giving to the Libraries

2015 Spring UMass Amherst  

You can contact the Development staff by email, or by phone at (413) 545-3974, or by U.S. Mail at W.E.B. Du Bois Library, 154 Hicks Way, Amherst MA 01003.

The Library welcomes gifts in all forms, including donations to the annual fund and endowments, planned gifts, sponsorships, and gifts of materials. We accept gifts by check (made out to "University of Massachusetts Amherst") and credit card, and we are also happy to help you set up recurrent giving through your debit card, make a planned gift, or give a gift of securities/stock. For faculty and staff, payroll giving is a great way to give regularly to the Library. We also appreciate gifts of materials which help enhance our collections.

Your philanthropic investment supports excellence in library collections, services, and facilities for our students and faculty.

Every donor to the Library becomes a Friend of the Library. At the $25 level, you will receive our Friends of the Library Newsletter twice a year and our annual report. 

We hold two special events each year: our Fall Reception to honor our donors in the fall, and our fundraiser, the Dinner with Friends in April.
