#TuftsGivingTuesday is Today, November 29 2022!

Dear Members and Supporters of the Tufts International Community -

Today, November 29, is #GivingTuesday - the international day of giving in support of non-profit and charitable organizations around the world!

We hope that today, you will consider supporting the Tufts International Center's Friends of the International Center fund. Through this fund, the International Center provides small grants to international students who are experiencing hardship and may need extra support to meet short-term and unexpected needs. This fund may help students to purchase a winter jacket, cover rising food and grocery costs, or to take care of any number of unexpected emergency expenses that can arise suddenly. With your generosity, we hope to expand our ability to support increasing numbers of students over the coming year.

To give to the Friends of the International Center fund, follow these steps:

  • Go to and click on the "GIVE NOW" button
  • On the #TuftsGivingTuesday donation form, complete the entries
    • In the "Designation" box, select "University Initiatives" (at the bottom of the drop down)
    • Under "University Initiatives" select "Other - please specify"
    • Type in "International Center"
    • Complete and submit the form

Any amount that you are willing to contribute in support of our international students in need will be greatly appreciated. Please consider also supporting many of the other worthy causes this #TuftsGivingTuesday!

Best regards,

Andrew Shiotani
Director, Tufts International Center
