Profiles in Giving

Jason Potts, A00

About him

Jason, who double-majored in history and classics, remains dedicated to Tufts. In 2005, he shared Volunteer of the Year honors for his work with the Tufts Fund for Arts, Sciences & Engineering, his efforts having helped his Class of 2000 set a Fifth Reunion record for giving. He has been a member of the Packard Society every year since graduation, ranging from Ivory Tusk to Cornelia M. Jackson level. Jason hosted Boston-area alumni at a fund-raising event with Boston Herald sportswriter Tony Massarotti, A89. He also is active in the Hillel Alumni Alliance. Before going to law school, he worked in the municipal bond underwriting group at State Street Global Markets, rising to the rank of assistant vice president.

Why he gives to Tufts

"The importance placed on our being members of a global community is at the foundation of what makes Tufts such a wonderful place to learn and grow. Whether Jumbos are volunteering in their community, participating in the Alumni Council, or simply going the extra mile in their profession, their willingness to better the world around them is what sets them apart from many of their peers."

"While we were students at Tufts, it was the gifts of the alumni ahead of us that made it possible for new buildings to be constructed, for classrooms to be updated, for the campus to be properly maintained, and for the continuation of many of the academic programs and activities that made our Tufts experience so meaningful. Now that we are alumni, it is our responsibility to ensure that the students who are currently at Tufts benefit from this same generosity. In addition, as a young alumnus, I think it is important not only to support the university but also to do so at a leadership level. My goal is that this will help to set an example and to encourage other younger alumni, who may be so inclined, to do the same."
