The University of Massachusetts at Amherst announced today that it had received the second largest donation in the school's history, a $5 million gift from Doug Berthiaume, an alumnus and chairman and CEO of Waters Corp., based in Milford, and his wife.
The gift will be used to support programs within the Isenberg School of Management.
The donation comes as UMass Amherst gears up for a major fundraising campaign with a target of $350 million, which will be used for scholarships, professorships, and construction projects
