Parents Giving Program
Welcome, Tufts University Families!
The mission of the Tufts Parents Giving Program is to partner with parents to directly impact and enhance the daily student experience. We accomplish this through encouraging parent philanthropy, engaging leadership donor parents through the Parents Leadership Council, and hosting regional events including the annual Parents and Family Weekend.
Someday your Jumbo could be on this list!
The creators of eBay and Blogger. The singer who saved the Negro spiritual. The greatest political intellect from New York since Alexander Hamilton. The inventor of Mrs. Butterworth’s Pancake Syrup. All Tufts alumni. Learn more about some of our notable alumni. How will your student make an impact?
Each year, parents contribute over $6 million in support of the student experience at Tufts through annual and major gifts. The annual Parents Fund, which raises $2.5 million, provides critical support for student research, faculty recruitment and retention, athletics, financial aid, innovative programming, and enhanced research facilities. Parents also support university-wide priorities by making gifts to the endowment to support scholarships, building projects and other university initiatives. Please review the methods and ways to give or call the Parents Giving Program at 617-627-3798 for more information.
Orientation, Wednesday, August 31
Parents and Family Weekend 2016, October 21-22
We host a number of smaller parent events throughout the country and internationally, connecting parents to the university faculty and senior administrators. Parents are also included in many of the events and affinity groups provided through the Tufts Office of Alumni Relations.
The Parents Giving Program communicates regularly with parents through print and electronic newsletters. We share highlights of campus life as well as stories of how your parent philanthropy impacts the daily experience of students. Please make sure we have your current email address by contacting us at email@example.com.
