BENEFITING: Trustees of Tufts College
Your support of Frances Stern financial aid helps train the next generation of registered dietitians.
“Every time I work with current students,” says Helene Fuchs, a 1975 graduate, “I’m reminded of how passionate they are about making a difference.” And yet she’s also aware that, like her, many current students couldn’t be in the program without financial help.
To ensure that help, Fuchs is leading a small group that includes Carole Palmer, AG69, and Pat Kearney, N78, AG81, to increase funding for students. “This is a way to expand the amount of my donation,” Fuchs says. “By combining gifts and encouraging others to match them, we can increase what the program receives.” Members of the group have committed to each making a gift of $2,500 per year for three years. They're challenging other graduates and friends of the program to match their combined contribution to the Frances Stern program’s financial aid fund.
Fuchs says of her efforts, “I’m investing in the sustainability of the work that the Frances Stern program does. I’m not giving back. I’m giving forward.”
