The Minutemen Club
The Minutemen Club is the fundraising arm of UMass Athletics. The Minutemen Club raises critical resources through the Maroon Excellence Fund, sport-specific designations, capital giving, and planned giving to provide an exceptional experience for our 650 student-athletes on UMass' 21 varsity sports. These funds give our student-athletes the tools they need to realize their full potential in the classroom, in competition and in the community.
