Packard Society: Leadership Giving

Vision. Leadership. Philanthropy.

The Packard Society is a community of distinguished alumni, parents, and friends who have a passion for Tufts and play a leadership role in supporting the university with their annual gifts to the Tufts Fund for Arts, Sciences, and Engineering.

These donors have chosen to make the university a philanthropic priority, and their gifts serve as a commitment to provide students with a rich experience and a powerful education. They are supporting extraordinary faculty and creating positive change on campus and across the globe.

Together, these leaders are lighting the way to an even brighter future for Tufts.

Facts and Figures

  • Financial aid has increased more than 60 percent in the last decade.
  • Each year, more than 2,000 alumni, parents, and friends give to the Tufts Fund at leadership levels.
  • Parents contribute more than $1.3 million annually in support of the Tufts Fund.

Deans' Inner Circle members are a select group within the Packard Society. These giving levels are an opportunity to commemorate the years and achievements since your graduation from Tufts. Leadership gifts at the Deans' Inner Circle level assist the university in preparing outstanding leaders, provide resources for financial aid, research, and internships, and nurture exploration of life beyond Tufts. Young alumni are especially encouraged to use this opportunity to support Tufts at a leadership level.

All Deans' Inner Circle members are also members of the Packard Society.
