The Executive Committee governs the overall operation of the organization. Its responsibilities include but are not limited to recruitment and nomination of other committee members and appointments. This committee is composed of the President and Committee Chairs.


The Development Committee leads the organization’s philanthropic efforts and collaborations such as Give Day, crowdfunding, and other peer-to-peer solicitations, along with general event planning and coordination. This committee also runs the annual Senior Class Challenge campaign to encourage graduating seniors to leave their legacy at UC Davis and perpetuate a culture of philanthropy after they graduate.

Finance and Allocation

The Finance and Allocation Committee oversees the allocation of funds associated with the Student Foundation’s responsibilities. In addition to the budget, this includes reviewing and distributing awards for the Student Emergency Relief Aid in collaboration with the Financial Aid office and Aggie Compass, in addition to the Cap and Gown award in collaboration with the UC Davis Bookstore.

Marketing and Stewardship

The Marketing and Stewardship Committee leads the organization’s external communication efforts such as developing and maintaining the brand for the Student Foundation online and creating and executing annual marketing plans. It also leads all stewardship efforts by organizing, working and promoting stewardship events, in close collaboration with DEVAR Donor Relations. Annual events include the student Thank-a-Thon, Leadership Giving Society (LGS) Gala, and Davis Chancellor’s Club (DCC) Insider Tours, and the By Philanthropy stewardship program.


Volunteers for Aggies Helping Aggies assist with the events that we collaborate on with other campus organizations. For example, they might help work the Stride for Aggie Pride 5k, staff a table at the Giving Fair or Aggie ThankU, or help set up on Give Day. Volunteers are welcome at all of our general meetings, are not expected to work closely with a committee, and mostly help out on a case-by-case basis for our events or promotions.
