Making our Fundraising Debut!
Women & Philanthropy is a new initiative at UC Davis and is committed to accelerating the conversation about women, philanthropy and leadership.
We are creating a Women & Philanthropy program to inspire, and activate women to use their time, talent, ties (networks), testimony and treasure for the greater good of society.
Gifts to the Women and Philanthropy Greatest Use Fund will facilitate our program expansion. Our near-term objective is to grow our inspiring speaker’s series, with two programs completed, we have explored diverse topics - Women’s Health: Aging through the Years and Art as Influence: Why It Matters.
Up next, when (current) restrictions are lifted, we will bring our vision to life with face-to-face and online forums that will call forward the power and potential of this collective. We want you to join us as we build an inaugural community of 1,000 women who together raise $1,000,000.
