YOU Can Help Fuel the Next 50!

The Mark H. McCormack Department of Sport Management is celebrating its 50th Anniversary! As members of the 50th Anniversary Campaign Steering Committee, we write to you today with a tremendous feeling of McCormack pride. While you read this, we hope that you have the opportunity to reflect on your time at UMass and your time within the sport management department, and you feel that pride too. 

In the past 50 years, there have been a lot of changes – from starting in Curry Hicks to now being housed in the internationally-ranked Isenberg School of Management – and we have made great strides as a department. 

We value and share your UMass and McCormack pride, as well as your support over the past five decades, and we’re asking you to help us fuel the next fifty years of excellence by supporting the department’s current fundraising efforts.

We hope you will donate to a fund that resonates with you, or support the overall mission of the McCormack Department by contributing to the general fund. You can be a crucial part of fueling the next fifty years of excellence with your gift or multi-year pledge, and we need your help to reach our goal of $1,000,000 and beyond!

We thank you for your consideration and hope you will “pay it forward” by participating with a gift to the 50th Anniversary Campaign. 

Thanks for your support!

You were, You are, UMASS! Go McCORMACK!

McCORMACK LEGACY CORNER: As part of the 50th Anniversary campaign, we will be creating the McCormack Legacy Corner; apropos of Mark H. McCormack’s particular legacy in golf, you can think of it as a play on The Masters’ Amen Corner! This special tribute section, to be located on the second floor of Isenberg outside of the sport management suite, will individually honor and recognize those alumni and friends who have supported our program with a gift of $50,000 or more.  

THANK YOU for enhancing the educational experiences and opportunities for sport management students and fueling our next 50 years!
