UMass Dartmouth Annual Fund
The vast majority of gifts the University receives are through the Annual Fund. These gifts provide the resources to make a UMass Dartmouth education the best possible.
Annual gifts come in all sizes, from a few dollars up to $100,000 or more, and are used in the current fiscal year.

Director, Annual Fund
Endowed gifts remove financial barriers so that students can attend UMass Dartmouth and ensure that top professors remain at UMass Dartmouth to teach the next generation of students.
Gifts can be endowed over a period of up to five years with distributions occurring after the fund is fully endowed. The list below provides some basic frameworks of potential endowment possibilities:
University Chair - $2,500,000
Department Head Chair - $1,500,000
Endowed Professorship - $1,000,000
Full Scholarship - $250,000
The staff of the Advancement Office are available to discuss your interests and draft scholarship fund terms that will indicate the preferences of the award, funding intentions of the donor, and the institution’s endowment spending policy.
Term scholarship funds provide a great opportunity to have an instant impact on a student’s education.
To establish a named Term Scholarship, a donor must commit to two-years at $1,000 per year. Similar to an endowed scholarship fund, a donor may state preferences for scholarship awards.
