Gifts of appreciated securities provide financial support to UMass Boston, as well as tax benefits for the donor. Please contact Deirdre McNamee, assistant vice-chancellor of finance and operations management, at 617.287.5332 if you would like to support the university through a gift of stock. It is most helpful if you clearly note the designation of the funds, so that we can properly allocate your gift.

Matching Gifts

Double or even triple your gift's impact on the university through a matching gift! More than one thousand companies offer some level of corporate match for their employees' philanthropic gifts. Best of all, you are recognized for the full amount of your own gift, plus any resulting corporate match.  To find out if your company has such a program, contact your human resources office.

Please contact Steven Ward at 617.287.5346 with questions related to making your gift.
