Annual Fund
Providing emergency, academic and research support for students and faculty

At UC Davis, we are extremely proud of our world-class faculty and students. The Annual Fund supports them through signature programs that enhance research and teaching opportunities—and open the doors to a more diverse student body at UC Davis.

 

Unrestricted funding is often incredibly valuable when university leadership needs to be nimble and and make quick decisions that benefit our students.

 

Recently, Annual Fund support enabled Chancellor May to provide use of 600 laptops to students who otherwise could not have participated when classes moved online during the Coronavirus emergency. 

 

By giving early today, you help UC Davis continue to address urgent needs as they arise.

 

Key among them is the Chancellor’s Fellows program, now celebrating its 20th year! Outstanding early career faculty who are named Chancellor’s Fellows receive unrestricted funding in the form of a cash award for their research, teaching, service activities or creative work. Students at all levels benefit from opportunities to participate in projects that are often groundbreaking or exploratory in nature.

 

These are transformative learning experiences for young people—and your support helps open them to students from all backgrounds. Chancellor’s Achievement Awards, another signature Annual Fund program, has gifted more than 500 scholarships to high performing California students who are often the first in their families to attend college. These awards change lives by opening higher education to students who otherwise might not have the opportunity.

 

The Annual Fund, supported by the UC Davis Chancellor’s Club—and by donors like you—helps UC Davis make the world a better place. Your gift allows the Chancellor to fund the university’s greatest needs, including emergency programs and those that advance research, teaching and social mobility among our faculty and students.

 

That’s why you mean the world to us. Please join us on Give Day!
