Each year the Friedman School seeks opportunities to enhance the educational experience for its students, opportunities for its faculty and staff, and its presence in the city. Donors help the University push nutrition students to excel, support vital research, and create real world impact. Both our donors and the beneficiaries of their generosity have stories to share. See some student and alumni stories below or learn more about Ways to Give.

“Your generosity has made this journey possible for me, and it inspires me to work harder every day. I hope that someday I am able to provide another student with the same opportunity.”
Donors who give $250 or more to the Friedman School or Jean Mayer Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging (HNRCA) Annual Fund during a fiscal year are recognized for their leadership support.
|Society of Tufts Fellows||$10,000-$24,999|
|Jean Mayer Society||$5,000-$9,999|
Donors who give annually to the Friedman School and HNRCA provide a steady stream of resources that the school and center count on to meet the challenges and changes of the ever-changing nutrition field. The Tufts Nutrition Loyalty Circle recognizes these donors who give for two or more consecutive years including the current fiscal year.
The Dean’s Inner Circle recognizes students and alumni who wish to contribute to the Annual Fund in a meaningful way that honors their graduation and dedication to nutrition, sustainability, and health.
For Alumni: Your Dean’s Inner Circle gift will be $50 times the number of years since you graduated.
For example, if the current fiscal year is 2017 (July 1, 2016-June 30, 2017), and you graduated anytime in fiscal year 2010 (July 1, 2009-June 30, 2010), you would count 7 years since you graduated. With a gift of $350 (7 * $50) or more, you will be recognized as a member of the Dean’s Inner Circle.
For Students: You will be recognized as Dean's Inner Circle gift with your gift of $25 or more to the Annual Fund.
