The UC Davis Parents Fund

Parents of current UC Davis students are invited to stay connected to their student and support the university by making contributions to the UC Davis Parents Fund.

Gifts to the Parents Fund enrich the educational experience of all UC Davis students by providing flexible funding that supports the university overall. Parents Fund donations are part of the UC Davis Annual Fund, but recognize and honor giving by parents in particular.
