Annual Giving


Every gift makes a difference, no matter the size

The vast majority of the nearly 35,000 donors who support UC Davis annually give through the annual giving program. On average, these donors give nearly $200 a year by giving a small amount each month through, by giving an annual gift in April during UC Davis Give Day or by giving during the year through mail, email and telephone outreach.

These gifts are some of the most meaningful UC Davis receives. Not only do they have a tremendous impact on the programs they support, they also maintain the Aggie spirit of service that has long defined UC Davis and continues to drive us today.

Are gifts to UC Davis tax deductible?

The two gift-receiving arms for UC Davis — The UC Davis Foundation and The Regents of the University of California — are both qualified charities that provide donors with 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.
