UMBelievers Loyal Donor Society

You are a . . . life changer, philanthropist, champion . . . you are a UMBeliever.

Through consistent giving to UMass Boston, UMBelievers have set the pace for loyal participation in our community. Their investment through annual gifts support student success, expanded research, and transformed our campus. Some UMBelievers have supported UMass Boston for over 40 years; other are more recent generous friends.

They are young and old, faculty and staff and university retirees, friends and advocates for public higher education, and of course, our remarkable alumni. Hundreds of UMBelievers have been with us from the start of Just Imagine: The Campaign for the University of Massachusetts Boston.

Please join them in setting the bar for excellence in philanthropic loyalty.

For more information about UMBelievers or how you can join us, please contact Vanessa Carta (hyperlinked to email), director of donor engagement and stewardship, at 617.287.5328.

Norma Casey '57, UMBeliever since 1996

I'm a UMBeliever because I have had such faith in the university for years. And I’m giving back for all the things they did for me.

James Overton, UMBeliever since 2012

I’m a UMBeliever because I believe in this institution and I also believe in our students here. The more we give, the more successful they’ll be and the more they’ll contribute to the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and this great country of ours.  

Duncan Nelson, UMBeliever since 1990

I'm a believer because this university celebrates that everyone has a contribution to make and everyone has contributions to be made to them. It’s a collaborative event of minds and I love every minute of it!

Marilyn MacElaney, UMBeliever since 2011

I'm a UMBeliever because UMass Boston offers the opportunity, for both young and old, to continue their lifelong dream for education.
