About Us

We are alumni of Tufts University - Go Jumbos!

We give no-strings-attached monthly $1,000 grants to awesome initiatives which are organized by or directly benefit Tufts University alumni or current Tufts University students. We love seeing projects that solve a problem, foster community, or spread joy. We're happy to see ideas that happen on-campus, off-campus, or anywhere else in the world.

We fund ideas, beginners, small projects, and experimenters more readily than others can, and we do it to give back a little to a community that has given us so much.

Here are some application tips:

  • Be brief - we have a lot to read
  • Be fun - stand out from everyone else
  • Be specific - show us this could really happen

We meet on the last Monday of every month to review applications, and generally only look at applications in the current month.

If your project was not selected in a given month, please feel free to reapply. You're also welcome to ask us for feedback before submitting a second time. We are happy to chat, promise!

Have an idea? Apply for a $1,000 grant!

Note: We are not affiliated with, endorsed by, or supported from the university in any way. We're a group of friends who happened to all go to college together.
