Support the Department of Computer Science
The Department of Computer Science can benefit from gifts of all sizes.
You may designate your gift to either the Chair's Discretionary Fund or the David W. Krumme Fund for Experimental Computer Science.
The David W. Krumme Fund for Experimental Computer Science was established in 2004 to honor the retirement of Professor David W. Krumme. This fund provides support for current and future generations of Computer Science majors at Tufts to engage in leading-edge computer science research.
The Chair's Discretionary Fund was established in 2005 and supports alumni events, student travel to conferences and a Distinguished Lecturer Series.
We accept gifts from individuals, corporations, and foundations through the following means:
Give by Mail
Checks payable to Trustees of Tufts College. Please note the designation for your gift in the memo field.
- By U.S. mail: To support any school or program, please make your check payable to Trustees of Tufts College, and mail to:
Boston, MA 02241-3306
- By telephone: You can call our toll-free number, 866-351-5184, from anywhere in North America, or call 617-627-4705 to make a gift via credit card.
- By online banking: If you prefer to use online banking, include the information below to ensure your gift to Tufts is received and processed correctly. Online banking services vary slightly from bank to bank so be sure to follow your bank's instructions:
Payee name: Trustees of Tufts College
Boston, MA 02241-3306
Amount: [your gift amount]
Memo: To direct your gift, please write the name of the school or priority you would like to support in the memo or comment field.
- Gifts of Securities: Appreciated securities can make an excellent gift. Donors who give securities that have been held long term can realize two benefits: you receive a charitable tax deduction for the full fair market value of the securities, and, at the same time, avoid capital gains taxes on the appreciated assets.
Please note: The securities must be given to Tufts University; if you sell the securities and donate the proceeds, you will not realize these same tax benefits.
For instructions for making a gift of securities, please contact or have your broker contact:
Trustees of Tufts University
169 Holland Street, 3rd Floor
Somerville, MA 02144

If your employer or your partner's employer has a matching gift program, your gift to Tufts may be doubled or even tripled. Your human resources office can supply you with specific instructions about its process for matching gifts. You can check if your company matches gifts to Tufts.
