April Member Benefits

Matching Gifts

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Spring Member Drive!

I would like to remind all of our Members that you can increase the value of your gift via Matching Funds. It’s a very easy process. Simply ask your personnel department if they have a Matching Gift Program. If so, ask for a form, fill it out, and send it to us. It’s a very easy way that may double the value of your gift!

 

In order to complete the Match, your company may ask for a 501(c)(3) Tax ID. We are covered by the University of Massachusetts Foundation which has a 501(c)(3) Tax ID of 04-6013152. Please clearly designate the funds to WUMB Radio / UMass Boston.

 

If you have any questions about Matching Gifts, feel free to contact the Membership Office at wumb.membership@umb.edu or by phone at 617-287-6902. Thank you! Read More…
