Giving to the School of Engineering: The Why, Where, and How

Why is supporting Tufts’ School of Engineering so important? Your gift literally fuels the engine that creates transformative experiences for today’s students. By giving, you support our faculty and students as they advance scientific and engineering knowledge to discover, develop, and disseminate new technologies and innovations that can enhance the well-being and sustainability of society.

Gifts from alumni, parents, and friends directly support students as they engage with each other, their professors, mentors, and coaches in classrooms, labs, studios, athletics fields, and shared learning spaces. 

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 students, 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.
