Ways to Give and Volunteer

There are many ways to give to and volunteer in the important work of the UMass Chan Medical School Department of Psychiatry.  You can help support the future work of the Department by specifying a gift for the UMass Chan Medical School Department of Psychiatry through the UMass Memorial Foundation. With attention focused on both research and patient care, your support of the UMass Memorial Foundation helps put medical advances into action to improve health and quality of life. The Foundation raises funds, sponsors educational programs and serves as an advocate for the UMass Chan Medical School and UMass Memorial Health Care.


The Department of Psychiatry welcomes your interest and support. Donations can be "directed" or "non-directed."  Your donation can be directed toward education.  Such donations can be used to benefit students through scholarship support, or psychiatry resident research fellows during their two or more years pursuing research.  Donations can also be targeted toward specific divisions/sections within the Department of Psychiatry that focus on the clinical treatment of certain psychiatric diseases.  In addition, donations may be targeted toward research, with the aim of working toward long term improvements in the management of certain psychiatric conditions.  Again, this can be done in either a general way, or more specifically targeted toward research in a certain area.

When you make a charitable gift, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting important work that will benefit many patients, directly and indirectly, for many years to come.
