Tufts Daily Support Fund

This crowdfunding project has ended, but you can still support the Tufts Daily here. Thank you for your continued support!

he Tufts Daily was founded in 1980, and is the only independent student newspaper at Tufts University. The Tufts Daily produces 1500 copies of every issue, every day Monday through Friday throughout the academic year. The Daily thrives with the help of some 175 student writers, editors, photographers, graphic designers, layout editors and copy editors, who in total spend around 1000 hours a week bringing the most up-to-date news to the faculty, students and community at Tufts. Though the time commitment of the Daily is different for everyone who works on it, we have found that some students have not been able to contribute as much as they'd like to the Daily because of financial restraints. In an effort to address this, The Tufts Daily has recently embarked on several initiatives to increase the inclusiveness of the paper. Our goal is to make it so that anyone and everyone can put as much time into the paper as they wish to, regardless of their financial situation. 

Last semester, the Daily was proud to start The Tufts Daily Support Fund, in which two first-year students were awarded $500 each in order to subsidize their time spent working at the Daily. This semester, we revamped and expanded the Support Fund, so that we were able to subsidize the work of three Daily contributers. We hope that the funds raised here will allow us to continue to expand this Support Fund, as well as our other inclusivity initiative, The Tufts Daily Work Study Program. Through this program, the Daily can register those on the paper's masthead as employees of the University if they receive federal or university-funded work study. This way, students can devote more time to working on the paper, instead of having to take up an additional on-campus job in order to support themselves. This program works by the federal government or the university paying 75 percent of students' hourly work study wages and the Daily paying the other 25 percent. Funds raised would help us cover the cost of 25 percent of students' hourly wages.

We thank you for any and every donation you can make towards these initiatives, and please feel free to reach out with any questions you may have!

Daily Dinner

Production starts at 5pm every day, meaning our staff is in the office during dinner. A $10 donation can cover the cost of dinner for a Daily contributer!


An Evening of Editing

All content at the Daily must be edited before it can be published. $25 is around what it would it cost in labor to get an entire article edited and ready for publication.


An Article a Day...

Keeps the doctor away?! Whether it's an article about the latest movie to hit theaters, or about last night's vote during the TCU Senate meeting, countless hours of research and writing go into every article. $50 covers around what it takes to produce a single article for the Daily


Arnold Palmer

$100 just about covers half the cost of a Support Fund award for a single student for a semester. Less hours behind a desk, and more hours producing amazing content for the Tufts community!


The Whole Kit and Kaboodle

A $250 donation finances the entire cost of a Support Fund award for one of our contributing writers, staff writers or assistant editors.


The Beyonce

That's it you've done it. You are the queen (or king) of donors. You have successfully subsidized the work of an executive staff member for an entire semester at 40 hours a week. We are eternally grateful.



Wow your donation has fully funded the work of two upper-level editors for an entire semester! We (along with our sleep schedules) are so grateful for your incredible generosity!
