Aggies Helping Aggies
Support Aggies Helping Aggies and Aggie Compass housing programs today!

As a student-run philanthropy organization, Aggies Helping Aggies is dedicated to building a culture of philanthropy among students. We increase awareness about the many philanthropic opportunities on campus, raise money for programs that directly help students, and encourage students to give to initiatives that improve campus life for everyone.




The Student Emergency Relief Aid program, formerly known as We Are Aggie Pride, offers financial awards (not loans that need to be repaid) to help fellow UC Davis students stay in school. This program was created by students who saw a need in our community and took action to make sure every student's educational goals are achieved. 


No student should have to discontinue their education due to an emergency financial setback. APPLY HERE for assistance.




Since 1983, UC Davis seniors have left their mark on the university by supporting the UC Davis Annual Fund, a fund that routes money raised by the university to where it is needed most on campus. This year, Aggies Helping Aggies is partnering with the Aggie Compass Basic Needs Center to help raise funds for the Rapid Rehousing Program which provides safe, stable housing for UC Davis students, as well as a meal plan and individual case management focused on holistic and academic success. We are asking 250 seniors to donate $20.21 to leave their legacy on campus through giving.
