Hundreds of faculty and staff members come together each year to support UMass Lowell students by contributing to many parts of campus at many different levels. Scholarships, endowments, academic programs and University resources are all stronger because of the dedication of University employees.
Annual participation from the internal University community makes a big difference, and a strong statement. As the faces students know, alumni remember and parents trust, faculty and staff members can inspire others to believe and invest in UMass Lowell students.
Three Options to Establish an Endowed Fund
|Faculty and Staff Endowment Match Program
Through the new faculty and staff endowment match program, the
University will match 50 percent of donations made by current and
retired faculty and staff members to a new or existing endowed fund.
Endowments typically fund scholarships, professorships, departmental
chairs, fellowships and lectureships.
Our new program offers three options to faculty and staff members who choose to either establish an endowed fund or contribute to a previously established one:
- Establish a new endowed fund with a minimum donation of $25,000
($5,000 per year for five years). A $25,000 donation would generate a
- Contribute a minimum of $10,000 to an existing endowed fund
($2,000 per year for five years). A $10,000 donation would generate a
- Multiple faculty and staff members can join together to
establish an endowed fund, i.e., departmental endowment, with the goal
of funding it at the $25,000 level within a five-year period. A $25,000
overall donation would generate a $12,500 match.
When you establish an endowment, your values and legacy become a permanent part of the University’s success and ensure that your enthusiasm for learning and teaching extends to future generations of scholars.
Don’t miss this limited opportunity to increase the impact of your support. The faculty and staff endowment match program will be offered until August of 2013.
