In partnership with the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service, we offer a broad range of activities that celebrate, educate, and engage Tufts alumni who are interested in building stronger communities and societies. Two of our regional chapters, Boston and New York, have formed committees which meet regularly to plan, develop, and implement new alumni programs and expand upon existing initiatives. Additionally, other regional chapters plan one-time community service projects throughout the year:

  • Boston Active Citizens
  • Tufts Active Citizens of New York (TACNY)
  • Other regional projects

#GivingTuesday was founded in 2012 by New York’s 92nd Street Y in partnership with the United Nations Foundation. It is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving—on the heels of Black Friday and CyberMonday—and serves as a global day dedicated to giving back and supporting non-profit organizations. Much of the marketing and engagement is in the social media space.

This year, through a strong volunteer corps, Tufts is hoping to engage as many alumni, parent and friend volunteers as possible to share broadly across their own social media networks the impact and importance of giving at Tufts.
