Tufts offers several ways you can make a “green gift” to the university
You can make a gift of any size to the annual fund that specifically supports sustainability efforts. You can also make an endowed gift that will be invested in the Tufts University Sustainability Fund (TUSF).
An annual fund gift helps the university meet current priorities and contributes to projects managed by Tufts Office of Sustainability. The office works closely with all Tufts schools on projects related to purchasing, human resources, food, LEED certification, landscaping and storm water management, event planning, energy, waste, water, climate adaptation and resilience planning, and green vehicles. For example, your gift could support:
- Student sustainability conference fees/travel and new initiatives
- Education—and action—focused curricula
- Sustainable landscaping
With a gift of $25,000 or more, you can establish an endowed fund (e.g., scholarship, professorship, lectureship, etc.) to be invested in the Tufts University Sustainability Fund (TUSF). Tufts established the TUSF in May 2015 with $1 million in seed funding to encourage activity that can diminish, mitigate, or reverse the impact of global climate change.
