November Member Benefits

 Matching Gifts

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our recent 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…

WUMB Thanks the Fall Fundraiser Sponsors!

We at WUMB Radio would like to take the time to thank the following companies who generously donated food to our Fall Fundraiser!  We have so many volunteers that take time from their busy schedule to assist us during our Fundraisers and it’s important that we have snacks to keep their energy up as they answer those pledge calls!   Read More…

October Member Benefits

Sustaining Membership at WUMB

Hi there!

I would like to take this opportunity to highlight a feature of Membership that you must hear about all the time: Sustaining Membership.
A Sustaining Membership is simply one that automatically renews. An ongoing monthly gift is a great way to express your enthusiasm for everything that WUMB does. Our Sustainers provide an ongoing base of support to allow us to continue bringing quality programming back to you, our community.


Benefits of Sustaining Membership:

  • Your Membership is ongoing and renews automatically every year.
  • You can cancel or change your donations at any time by contacting the Membership Office at 617-287-6902 or wumb.membership@umb.edu.
  • You can request a Thank You Gift each year.
  • More of your gift goes towards music programming, because sustaining Memberships eliminate the costs of renewal notices.

So how do you join?

Contact the Membership Office at 617-287-6902 or wumb.membership@umb.edu. Or just check off the “Make me a Sustaining Member” box when you donate online at http://wumb.org.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

Thank you for your support!
