Other ways to donate

Tribute giving

Your gift may be made in memory or in honor of someone special. If you are making your gift online, there’s an area on our online giving form to note this; you can also tell us in writing if you submit a check. We’ve written some sample language that can be used for an obituary.

Matching gifts

Many employers will match employee charitable contributions, which can double the impact of your gift. If using our online giving form, please check the appropriate box. Contact your Human Resources Department for a matching gift form from your employer and send us a completed copy. We will do the rest.

Planned giving

There are ways to make an important gift commitment without letting go of your assets today. A planned gift option might be the right fit for your personal planning. Learn more.

Payroll deduction - UMMS employees

UMass Medical School employees can make charitable donations to the school through payroll deduction. Please contact the Office of Advancement to learn more: 508-856-5524, giving@umassmed.edu

New Charitable Gift Tax Deductions

The Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act signed in March 2020 includes two provisions that provide tax incentives for 2020:

  1. Donors who do not itemize deductions on their taxes can now deduct up to $300 in cash gifts.
  2. Donors of cash gifts can now deduct up to 100 percent of their adjusted gross income (does not apply to gifts contributed to donor-advised funds).
