Kochevar and some of the students, faculty and staff of the Cummings School and learn why your gift to the Cummings Veterinary Fund makes a difference and has an impact on the good work of our veterinary community.

Give back to your past.

You have benefited from your Tufts Veterinary education. Now you have the power to give this invaluable opportunity to other students with a gift to the Cummings Veterinary Fund. This annual fund plays a crucial role in all aspects of campus life, helping us to do everything from purchasing laboratory and hospital equipment to providing needed financial aid to worthy students.

Take Pride in our present.

You can be proud of your campus community, which continues to be at the forefront of veterinary innovation. Recently, our research into infectious diseases has helped to manage threats to both animals and humans around the world. Our teaching hospitals continue to provide the most advanced animal care 365 days a year. And our international and environmental medicine programs have helped save animals and preserve environments from Cape Cod to Nepal.

Be a part of our future!

You now have the opportunity to be a part of Cummings' exciting future. Together, we can support Tufts' legacy of excellence and inspire and prepare the next generation of leaders in veterinary medicine. Your unrestricted gift to the Cummings Veterinary Fund makes Tufts a special place to pursue the dream of becoming a veterinarian.
