Successful Annual Fund Finish

Each year, Amherst’s Annual Fund provides vital support to the College’s operating budget. Thanks to the generous support of alumni, parents and friends, the Annual Fund raised $10.1 million during the fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2015.

The Annual Fund—started in 1906—allows the College to fund immediate priorities year after year: scholarships for exceptional students, resources for our faculty and for student research, and support for campus preservation and upkeep.
