What is the Senior Class Gift?
If 40% of current seniors make a gift of any size to any part of Tufts, an alumnus will donate $10,000 directly to financial aid.
With nearly 40% of our student population receiving some form of financial aid, we feel strongly that the biggest impact to be made is making Tufts more affordable. If you choose to give toward financial aid, 100% of that gift goes toward financial aid. We want the Class of 2019 to look back and see the tangible changes we've made in the lives of the students who come after us- so let's work together to make the Tufts experience accessible for students of today and future Jumbos to come!
How will your gift make an impact?
Aside from financial aid, funds raised from the Senior Class Gift also go toward improving the Tufts community by financially supporting the initiatives that have shaped our experience at Tufts - from club sports, to BEATS, to pre-orientation programs. Without Senior Gifts from years past we may not have had these amazing experiences. It's now our time to do the same for the next generation.
If you feel strongly that a certain organization has made a formative impact on your Tufts experience, you can choose to contribute directly toward that group in the designated "other" field. If you do not choose to do that, your donation will be allocated to financial aid. All areas relevant to student life at Tufts, including financial aid, athletics, and the arts receive support from student donors, so let's continue to make the Tufts experience as vibrant as possible!
