Giving to the School of Arts and Sciences: The Why, Where, and How
Why is supporting Tufts’ School of Arts and Sciences so important? Your gift literally fuels the engine that creates transformative experiences for students on the Hill—in classrooms, labs, studios, athletics fields, and shared learning spaces.
Gifts from alumni, parents, and friends empower Tufts students and faculty to be at the forefront of research and innovation, creativity and collaboration, and able to focus on civic engagement with a global impact. Now that we’ve addressed the “why,” it’s important to know the “where” and “how.”
Where you give is up to you—provide immediate and broad impact through annual fund gifts, cement your legacy through your estate, or provide leadership and endowed gifts to support faculty, research, or facilities. The options for how you can give are almost limitless.
By knowing the Why, Where, and How of giving to Tufts, you are ready to make your gift! By doing so, you enable Tufts to emphatically say “YES!” to educating creative scholars who generate bold ideas, innovate in the face of complex challenges, and distinguish themselves as active citizens of the world.
