Parents of Tufts University students make up an important part of the Tufts community. Parents of undergraduates get a close look at the Medford campus when they entrust their young adults to our care, and stay informed through the Parents Program. Even with students at the graduate level, parents have a strong connection and commitment to Tufts.

Tufts is grateful for the generous support of parents. Contributions to the Parents Fund are applied to the university’s operating budget and help bridge the gap between tuition and the actual cost of a Tufts education. Gifts to the Parents Fund also have supported acquisitions for the university library, athletics, information technology, the purchase of scientific and technological equipment, renovations and, of course, financial aid. Learn more about the Parents Fund and its goals.

Please consider making a gift to Tufts. You may designate your gift to the Parents Fund, or target a specific school or program. Make your gift online now, or read about different opportunities for giving to the University.
