Why should you give?

There are many reasons to give. Here are three big ones: 

  1. Your first gift to the university is recognized with the white tassel, which you can proudly wear at commencement, distinguishing you for your support to UMass Lowell. 
  2. Honor what you love about UMass Lowell. Now is your chance to pay tribute to the student program, professor or activity that changed your life. 
  3. To lead the way for future River Hawks—make sure their experience is as great as yours. Many don't realize that tuition and fees don’t cover all of the UMass Lowell experience. A lot of what makes UMass Lowell great is only possible through the support of donors.
