Make SMFA at Tufts your cause on #GivingTuesday. SMFA students communicate through making and your gift helps prepare these creative thinkers to start conversations that matter.

This #TuftsGivingTuesday your gift goes even further: Walter Bentson, Carol Daynard (DIP09), Mimi Jigarjian (DIP11) will collectively give $10,000 if we reach 100 donors on December 3. That’s $10,000 for 100 gifts!
