About Us

The Amherst Foundation supports numerous initiatives in areas where we live and work, with a targeted focus in education initiatives, social services, cutting-edge medical research, and the health and welfare of our country’s military personnel. Through the Amherst Foundation and its contributions, we strive to make a meaningful difference in the lives of people and communities in need.

The Amherst Foundation also provides an employee charitable giving matching program through which we amplify the charitable contributions Amherst employees make to qualified secular and apolitical nonprofit organizations with non-discriminatory missions. Through this program, we can have an impact on smaller, local community-based organizations that align with our employees’ values.
