Gifts to the endowment are the building blocks of Amherst’s financial future. The College’s leadership gift officers directly engage individuals in conversations exploring the full spectrum of investment opportunities at Amherst. These include permanent scholarship funds, endowed professorships, support for new facilities, student research fellowships and service internship programs.
