What does Amherst mean to you?

The answer might lie in the lightbulb moments you had in the classroom of a favorite professor. Or the friendships that have enriched your social life—and perhaps your professional one—for 10, 20, 30, or more years. Or the thrill of personal achievement on the stage or the field. Or the beauty of a full moon rising over the Holyoke Range.

You can honor your meaningful moments with a gift that lives through time. Planned gifts take many forms, but each one lets you prioritize Amherst in advance—providing scholarships for students of talent and promise, sustaining a faculty of leading scholars for whom teaching is a calling and an art, and creating transformational facilities and spaces that showcase and celebrate the rigor, accomplishment, and community for which Amherst is known.
