Emergency Funds
Facing Challenges Together

As the impacts of COVID-19 unfold, we are prioritizing the health and safety of our students, patients and health professionals who are working around the clock to serve us.

 

Philanthropic support has been key to the university’s ability to provide food, emergency housing and other crucial resources to undergraduate and graduate students in need, including use of laptops allowing students to continue their studies when classes moved online.

 

Your gifts also provide emergency support for our medical students, patients, clinicians, nurses and staff at UC Davis Health who are working on the front lines and in laboratories to save lives and find solutions to this fast-moving and lethal pandemic.

Your gift to any of our emergency funds supports much-needed resources and research that will mitigate the negative and varied consequences of COVID-19. Gifts of any size make a difference.

 

Thank you for your generous support—now and always.
