We celebrate your support as an employee and a donor
If you are an employee donor, you are in good company. Over 3,000 faculty, staff, retirees, and emeriti believe in the power of philanthropy at UC Davis and support the university.
We celebrate all donors to UC Davis, but employee donors have a unique connection to what we do and who we are. In recognition of your support, each year we invite our employee donors to join us for a few fun and free in-person events like our Ice Cream Social with Chancellor May and our Philanthropy Spotlight Tours. We also recognize supporters through our Gratituesday social media features, and weekly surprise visits to honor donors during Employee Giving Month in April.
Philanthropy Spotlight Tours go behind-the-scenes
Each year Davis as UC it offers two unique tours of an area of campus to employee donors and their children. These Philanthropy Spotlight Tours are a way to thank our campus donors for supporting UC Davis, by sharing a behind-the-scenes look at programs that make our campus special.
These free events often take place around the lunch hour and have included tours of the Goat Dairy, the Botanical Conservatory, Aggie Compass and The Pantry. Invitations are sent via email to all the people on campus who support any area of UC Davis through payroll deduction, gifts on Give Day or any time during the fiscal year.
#GratiTuesday recognizes employee donors
Tuesdays are an important day for Davis as UC it, because they are an opportunity to recognize our employees’ commitment to UC Davis. No matter what area of campus you support, we want to honor you and your colleagues for all you do, what you support and why you support it.
Thank you, Darnel!
