Graduate School of Management

The Graduate School of Management’s Class of 2000 began a tradition of giving back to the school by establishing a class gift. This tradition lives on with each graduating class giving to the Graduate School of Management Endowment, contributing to the school’s ability to continue as a leader in management research and education.

Established in 1981, the UC Davis Graduate School of Management is one of the top MBA programs in the country, consistently recognized for its excellence in teaching and research.

Private, unrestricted gifts to the school provide vital funds to assist in attracting world-class faculty, provide financial assistance for students, and enhance experiential learning opportunities to enable students to translate classroom knowledge into real-world practice.

Child Family Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship

The Child Family Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship serves as a springboard for innovations developed in the university. Through a broad range of experiences and programs, the institute helps science and engineering students, post-doctoral researchers and faculty move their research out of the lab and into the world. Our programs help researchers and others:

  • build a business skill set for a career in industry
  • evaluate the market opportunities for their research
  • network with industry and investment experts

Microbiologists, transportation engineers, physicists, computer scientists, chemists, nutritionists, computer scientists, environmental engineers, and more turn to the Institute for the tools that will give their research a broad and practical impact.

Private support for the UC Davis Child Family Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship from individuals, businesses, and public and private organizations enables us to further expand our entrepreneurial education initiatives.

There are many ways to contribute. Your contribution goes to support our one-week Entrepreneurship Academies for science and engineering researchers, fellowships for our Business Development Fellows (a select group of eight science and engineering graduate students and postdocs who spend a year at the Graduate School of Management learning business development and technology management) and the annual Big Bang! Business Plan Competition.

We are dedicated to helping you find the gift opportunity that is best for you or your corporation and organization. All gifts to the Institute are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

Make a gift now.
