Advancement encompasses Alumni and Parent Programs (APP), the Annual Fund, Leadership Giving, Gift Planning, Grants Office, Advancement Operations, and the Loeb Center for Career Exploration and Planning. We work to advance the Amherst College mission, help to raise awareness of the College and its goals, and encourage generosity in Amherst’s external constituencies. We accomplish this by nurturing long-term and mutually-enriching relationships with and among constituents, including alumni, families and friends.
Amherst Advancement fosters connections between alumni and the College, creating more and better opportunities for student research, internships, and service.
Where can you find us?
Advancement is housed across three buildings: Pontypool (22 Snell Street), Smith House (22 Hitchcock Road) and College Hall.
