#TuftsGivingTuesday is over, but you can still support Tufts. Click here!
Our tradition continues...

#TuftsGivingTuesday celebrates everything that our students and faculty do to help build a brighter world. This year there are more than 60 challenges to choose from, including specific challenges that reflect recent increased needs of our students:

  • the COVID-19 Financial Aid Match is a dollar to dollar match for undergraduate financial aid, up to $200,000

  • 200 gifts to the Division of Student Diversity & Inclusion will secure a $52,000 challenge gift, which will be split equally among the six identity-based resource centers and the BEST/BLAST programs

  • the Unexpected Hardship Fund supports students who experience unplanned expenses; there is a matching gift up to $25,000 today

By giving, you’re not only leading this tradition and helping Tufts secure challenge funds for meaningful initiatives—you are supporting the heart of Tufts’ shared values: building a brighter world.
