The Lampas Society, established in 2006, is a society of forward-thinking individuals who have included UMass Boston in their future estate plans.

Beginning in 1928, "Lampas" was the name given to the Teachers College yearbook representing the torch of inspiration lighting the path toward the ideals of the university.
The Lampas Society recognizes alumni, faculty, and friends who support the university regardless of the size of their planned gift. Giving may be made through a bequest, life income gift arrangement, retirement plan (IRA, 401(k), 403(b)) life insurance policy, real estate gift, and other estate intentions.
What benefits do Lampas Members receive?
- a special pin that recognizes gifts and/or estate intentions;
- the Lampas Society newsletter, which highlights various estate planning vehicles; and
- invitations to several Society events throughout the year, including an annual luncheon featuring Chancellor J. Keith Motley, PhD.
We express our deepest appreciation to members of the Lampas Society for their commitment to UMass Boston and for carrying on our university’s legacy of education for all.
