Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences

200 gifts for $20,000


Record-breaking. That’s what this year’s #TuftsGivingTuesday is shaping up to be for the Sackler School.


Here’s the deal: Members of the Sackler Campaign Committee have issued a challenge, if the school receives 100 gifts, Shilpi Banerjee, SK93, David Greenwald, SK11, Bina Julian, SK17, Michaela Tolman, SK18, William L. Trepicchio, Jr., SK92, and Susan Sloan, SK04 will collectively give $10,000.


And if that wasn’t enough, if we meet that goal, Campaign Committee Chair, Greg Sieczkiewicz, SK00 says he’ll make a gift of $10,000 IF we reach 200 donations total on #TuftsGivingTuesday.


That means $20,000 for the school. You know the impact that will have for students and faculty, so BE HEARD and make your gift by 11:59 PM on December 3!
