The Annual Fund supports every aspect of the College--students, academic programs, faculty, facilities and more. Gifts to the Annual Fund have an immediate impact and provide critical, current-use support for the College.
The Annual Fund contributes roughly 7% to Amherst’s operating budget each year. The money raised is used to support annual expenses such as faculty salaries, financial aid, residential life and a modern campus. Last year, the Annual Fund raised nearly $10.1 million, with more than 11,000 alumni and parents contributing.
By showing through your annual gift that Amherst matters to you, you make Amherst matter to others.
