Trustees

Megan Ainley
Aggies Helping Aggies President

Megan is a second-year NPB major at UC Davis.  She has always been interested in philanthropy and helping people.  Growing up as a biracial, bisexual woman, she has witnessed firsthand the need for philanthropy in our daily lives.  Given all of the bad news that we hear every day, she feels that it is even more important, because so many people are underprivileged in our current society and because of that, she feels that we all have a duty to do our best to aid in any way that we can.  That is why she is on the pre-med track at UC Davis, and why she is so interested in philanthropy and Aggies Helping Aggies.

Development Committee: 

Jeffrey Lee
Development Committee Co-Chair

Jeffrey is a second year Sociology-Organizational Studies major.  He decided to get involved with philanthropy because of his previous internship experiences at several nonprofits, whose stability and success depended on their quality of donor relations.  Recognizing that many on-campus resources would not have been available for himself and other students if not for the generous support of donors, he hopes to educate his peers on the impact of giving, while building transferable skills for his career.

Finance and Allocation Committee

Michelle Trinh
Finance and Allocation Committee Chair

Michelle is a third-year Economics major with minors in Accounting and Technology Management.  She is part of the Finance and Allocation Committee, as she hopes to work in finance or accounting in the future. She has always felt the need to give back to those that have helped her, which is why she believes philanthropy is a great way of showing gratitude. In the past, she has actively volunteered at public events, libraries and tax preparations sites to help others in her community.  With Aggies Helping Aggies, she is looking forward to a more hands-on approach with helping fellow students.
