The Beacons Athletics Fund provides our student athletes and coaches with the resources that are necessary to compete at the highest level of Division III college athletics. Each program has benefited directly from increased support for athletics. Donations may be designated to any one of UMass Boston's 18 varsity programs. Many parents, friends, and former athletes have chosen to designate their gift to the specific program in which they were involved. Others have chosen to make unrestricted gifts to the Beacons Athletics Fund, which gives the Director of Athletics flexibility to use the funds where they are needed the most. Give Now.
