Annual Giving

Annual Giving

Every gift, no matter the amount, enables us to make an even bigger impact. Through the annual giving program, you can join 35,000 donors who support UC Davis each year. These tax-deductible gifts (which average $200 annually) are some of the most meaningful we receive. Why? It’s not just because they help advance a wide range of programs and initiatives. It’s because they inspire others to give: they uphold the Aggie spirit of service that defines our university and drives us to make it even greater.

The two gift-receiving entities at UC Davis—the UC Davis Foundation and the Regents of the University of California—are both qualified charities that offer donors tax benefits to the full extent of the law. Your annual gift will qualify for a tax deduction in accordance with IRS regulations during the calendar year that you make your gift.
