500 gifts for $50,000

A Tufts tradition continues, and you are an important part of it. The medical school 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, David Fisher, M.D., M63 will give $25,000, then The Class of 1971’s 50th Reunion Committee (Carole E. Allen, MD, MBA, Richard M. Dupee, M.D., Rosemarie L. Fisher, M.D., Alan R. Forman, M.D., Gerard L. Gaughan, M.D., Naomi Lynn Gerber, M.D., Vincent Iacono, M.D., David S. Pratt, M.D., Eric J. Sacknoff, M.D., Helen M. Shields, M.D.) joins the charge with their challenge to get another 250 gifts for $25,000
