Dear Tufts Alumni, Colleagues, and Friends of the Tufts International Community:

Today is #GivingTuesday - a day when people around the world show their support to their communities by donating to non-profit and charitable organizations. As a part of Tufts University's efforts to build a brighter world, the Tufts International Center joins other worthwhile initiatives and efforts as a part of the #TuftsGivingTuesday campaign.

This year, the International Center is seeking support for our International Student Emergency fund. Tufts hosts more than 1,700 international students from around the world, representing nearly 90 countries. Our International Student Emergency fund will be used to support international students who are facing short-term emergency needs during these challenging times. These may include unexpected food security concerns, sudden medical expenses, winter clothing and shelter, and other costs for which existing resources are limited. The International Center relies on these funds to provide critical support to students encountering these unexpected difficulties, and we appreciate your support.

Please consider helping our International Student Emergency fund efforts by:

  • spreading the word - please forward this message to other friends and supporters of the Tufts international community
  • post this message to your social media account
  • consider giving yourself - no matter how large or small, any amount is deeply appreciated (see below for instructions on how to give to the International Center)

Thank you again for considering this request and for your participation in #TuftsGiving Tuesday!


The Tufts International Center Team
