100 gifts for $10,000

A Tufts tradition continues, and you are an important part of it. The GSBS community has risen to the occasion and issued impactful challenges in honor of this important day.

 

For the third year running, Campaign Committee Co-Chair Greg Sieczkiewicz, Ph.D., J.D., GBS00 will give $10,000 if our community can reach 100 gifts.

 

Double Your Impact Challenges

Give to one of the priorities below and your gift will count twice: it will be counted toward the overall goal of 500 gifts AND will count toward the challenges listed below. One gift – double the impact.

 

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Challenge – if 25 gifts are made then Campaign Committee Co-Chair Shilpi Banerjee, Ph.D., GBS93 will give $2,500 to support the school’s commitment to a culture of inclusive excellence.

 

Dean’s Fellowship Fund Challenge – a generous donor will make a gift of $1,500 if 15 gifts are made to help reduce financial barriers for students to obtaining a biomedical science degree.

 

Career Development Challenge – if 10 gifts are made to this fund then Bina Julian, Ph.D., GBS17 will give $1,000 to allow students to explore their ideal careers and develop skills outside of the laboratory.
