Gift Planning


I do not have words to express what my scholarships have meant to me. They have alleviated my worries about funding and allowed me to focus on studying.

Imagine that what you value most deeply will continue to enrich the lives of generations. Through a scholarship, a faculty fund, a student grant or stipend, or other designations you can create a legacy for the future.

Gift planning allows you to strengthen the university's mission and your charitable gift can provide valuable tax benefits and/or income for life for you and your loved ones. Our planned giving professionals can assist you with leaving a bequest, creating income, or making UMass Boston a beneficiary of your assets. 

Lampas Society

The Lampas Society recognizes alumni, faculty, and friends who support the university regardless of the size of their planned gift. Giving may be made through a bequest, life income gift arrangement, retirement plan (IRA, 401(k), 403(b)) life insurance policy, real estate gift, and other estate intentions. 

Members receive benefits, such as a lapel pin, a newsletter, and invitations to special events, including an annual luncheon with Chancellor J. Keith Motley, PhD.
