Endowments and Scholarships

Endowed gifts or scholarships have the unique ability to create an enduring legacy at UMass Dartmouth. Gifts can be established with a minimum contribution of $25,000 which may be paid in increments over a period of up to five years. With approximately 4% of the principal awarded each year, support from endowed gifts and scholarships will make a lasting impact in perpetuity. Additional contributions can be made to the funds at any time, thereby increasing the principal and the revenue available to students.

For individuals interested in donating scholarship funds for immediate use, term scholarships provide a valuable opportunity to have an instant impact on a student’s education.

For more information on establishing an endowed gift or scholarship at UMass Dartmouth contact the Advancement Office at 508-999-8200 or email advancement@umassd.edu .

Gifts in Kind

Gifts in kind are non-cash gifts of physical assets or services that may be donated to help fulfill the university's mission. Please use the Gifts in Kind form to make a donation or contact Valerie Au at 508-999-8826 for more information.

Gifts of Stock

Gifts of appreciated securities and closely held stock can be extremely beneficial -- both to you and to UMass Dartmouth. You may receive an income-tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities, as well as reduce or eliminate capital gains taxes. Gifts of stock and mutual funds are coordinated by the UMass Dartmouth Foundation through BNY Mellon. Please contact Valerie Au at 508-999-8826 for more information.
