2021 TCA Board Launch Letter

TCA Highlights

  • Support our students – make a donation to Tufts Financial Aid. Join alumni, parents and friends in the effort to help deserving and extraordinary students attend Tufts based on their academic ability and not their ability to pay. Your contribution to financial aid supports students who are improving their lives and changing the world.
  • Contribute to the Tufts Community Grants program to support our host communities and the important work that is done by Tufts volunteers with community organizations in Medford, Somerville, Grafton and Boston. This year, your gift to the TCG program will make double the impact thanks to a generous matching gift from Cummings Foundation; every dollar donated to the TCG program will be matched— up to $50,000! You can learn more about Tufts Community Grants here.

How to make a gift: 

  • Give Online.
  • Give with a check using the form you received in the mail or printing and mailing this form.
  • Use Employee Self Service (eServe) to make your TCA donation through a payroll deduction. Follow the steps below or check out this step by step guide to set up a voluntary payroll deduction:
    • Login to Employee Self Service (eServe) > Payroll & Compensation > Voluntary Deductions > Add Deduction > Select Type of Deduction and $ amount/s.

Your giving equals more giving! Three employees who participate in the TCA will be randomly selected and Tufts will make a $250 donation to a local non-profit of their choice.  Names will be picked throughout the appeal and we will contact you if you’re selected.
