Recognizing our loyal donors

The generosity of our alumni, student families, benefactors, and friends is fundamental to a vibrant community where students, faculty, and researchers thrive. UMass Dartmouth is a community where our students become the curious thinkers, selfless citizens, and motivated, successful professionals that the world needs.

UMass Dartmouth is grateful for the dedication of our donors and friends. Their generosity makes it possible for UMassD students to receive a high-quality educational experience that prepares them for future success. It is our honor to recognize our most loyal donors through our giving societies.
