Supporting Lily’s Fund

Making Lily’s Fund a reality takes raising $30,000 dollars. That’s the minimum to establish an endowed fund—but once it’s raised, the fund can run in perpetuity off the annual return from the endowment, without needing more donations.

Donations of $1,000 or more will receive a TMC lifetime membership: free stay at the Loj for life.

Gifts to support the Tufts Mountain Club in honor of Lily Glidden can be made online or by standard mail. Gifts will be designated for general support of the Tufts Mountain Club, but if this initiative can raise $25,000 by June 30, 2016, Tufts will create an endowed fund to honor Lily and support the Tufts Mountain Club in perpetuity.
