Each year, thousands of UC Davis alumni, parents, friends, faculty, staff and students express their commitment to UC Davis and all who benefit from the university’s work by giving to the UC Davis Annual Fund.
Annual Fund contributions provide the chancellor with crucial, flexible funding to enrich student life, respond to emerging opportunities, and meet pressing needs.
These gifts — no matter the size — make a real impact. Together, these contributions typically reach more than a $1 million each year. Since 1990, more than 100,000 supporters have collectively contributed more than $25 million to UC Davis through the Annual Fund.
When you make a gift to the UC Davis Annual Fund, you are also participating in The Campaign for UC Davis, helping the university reach its goal to engage 100,000 donors in contributing $1 billion in philanthropic support to build and sustain UC Davis’ excellence.
