March to the Top

As we March to the Top this month, you can magnify the impact of your gift by supporting any (or all!) of four key funding priorities:

  • COVID-19 Response Fund
  • Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Efforts
  • Financial Aid
  • Unexpected Hardship Fund

If there is a different area at Tufts you want to support, that is naturally welcomed as well.

Graduated in the last 15 years?  Current undergraduate student?  You can even further your impact: your gift will support the area you choose and help secure our Young Alumni March to the Top Challenge or Student Challenge!
