600 gifts for $60,000
Here at the medical school we are ready for what we hope will be another record breaking #TuftsGivingTuesday. Our community has risen to the occasion and issued impactful challenges in honor of this important day.
Here’s the plan: when we reach 250 gifts, Danh Nguyen, M94 will give $25,000, then former alumni association president, Tom Hedges, M75 joins the charge with his challenge to get another 250 gifts for $25,000. When we reach 500 gifts, Dean Harris Berman steps in to push us towards a record-breaking 600 gifts, with his challenge of 100 gifts for $10,000.
