UC Davis Chancellor’s Club

Donors who give $1,000 or more at the leadership level each year to any area of campus are included in the oldest donor recognition society at UC Davis, the Davis Chancellor’s Club (DCC).

DCC gifts make a tremendous impact no matter what area of campus they support. Gifts to the UC Davis Annual Fund, in particular, support a wide array of university faculty and student programs, including the Chancellor’s Fellows and the Chancellors Achievement Award Scholarship program, among others. Both programs help the university attract and retain the best and brightest faculty and students. These gifts also enable the Chancellor to direct funds where the campus needs, and opportunities, are greatest. For a complete list of Chancellor’s Fellows, click here.

DCC members enjoy a special relationship with university leadership and are invited to several campus traditions and events, some of which are behind-the-scenes events created specifically for the DCC. Gifts of $1,000 or more can be made by cash or check, credit card, the donation of securities, and several other methods.
