The Tufts Pollinator Initiative is participating in #TuftsGivingTuesday for the first time! Giving Tuesday is on November 28th. Please consider donating to TPI to support our outreach programming and habitat building!

Make your donation here!

We at TPI are passionate about pollinator conservation through education, research , and habitat building. And we love introducing the community to the joy of getting to know the pollinators in your backyard. That’s why we do all of our programming for FREE. We donate our time so that you have the knowledge, interest, and resources to support native pollinators.

Bee hotels with local girl scout troops
Native plant sale – plants grown from seed from our gardens and sold for $3 per plant
Seeds and Cider – Free seed packets and guides for seed collection!

Our members work on a volunteer basis, but unfortunately, the resources to build our gardens, lead community activities, and to put on a native plant sale are not free. We need your support to continue offering the programs you love!

If you have participated in TPI events in the past, or you feel passionately about pollinator conservation and want to find a way to get involved, please consider donating to TPI on #TuftsGivingTuesday to support our mission. Thanks to a generous donor, there will be a dollar-for-dollar match for the first $500 in donations we receive, so you can double your impact!

Thank you for your support in making Tufts a center for pollinator conservation in Greater Boston!
