How Long Will My Donation Be Used at Tufts

Typically, donations are used for one year or its academic cycle equivalent. In some cases, donations have been utilized for up to two years.

When studies are complete, two interment options are available

  • At the expense of Tufts University, cremation will take place and the cremated remains will be returned to the donor's family.
  • At the request of the next of kin, remains can be released to a designated funeral home for private interment at the expense of the family or estate.
