It seemed only fitting that I continue to help students have as much opportunity for success as I did.    Lornie Bullerwell '69, donor to Bullerwell Scholar Award in Biology

Imagine that something you care about deeply will continue to grow and develop—forever.

Endowed gifts are invested and managed by the university in perpetuity. A portion of the investment earnings is spent, while the original gifts are preserved as principal. In this way, endowed gifts have far greater earning power—a one-time gift renews itself in perpetuity.

UMass Boston's endowment supports education and research, financial aid, facilities, and the latest technology. By establishing an endowment you enable the university to recruit the best faculty and students, keep up with new knowledge and develop new ways to share it, and attract the most visionary leaders. A named endowment fund may be created with a gift of $25,000, payable over a period of five years.
