The Tufts Neighborhood Service Fund (TNSF) committee awarded grants to five organizations in Grafton, eight organizations in Chinatown, ten programs in Medford, and twelve organizations in Somerville.
TNSF collects donations from university employees throughout the year and then awards grants to community-based, charitable organizations that serve Tufts’ host communities (Somerville, Medford, Grafton and Boston’s Chinatown) and that actively engage Tufts volunteers in their work.
A committee comprised of Tufts administrators, faculty and staff meets annually to review proposals and select grant recipients. In 2014 there was a total of $18,500 available to distribute through TNSF. The committee received 60 proposals representing more than $90,000 in requests and selected 35 programs and projects for awards.
