Supporting Aggie students in need, every day
Aggies Helping Aggies (AHA), the UC Davis Student Foundation, is dedicated to building a culture of philanthropy among students. By increasing awareness about the many philanthropic opportunities on campus, AHA raises money for programs that directly help their fellow students, and encourages students to give to initiatives that improve campus life for everyone.
Even students who manage their money carefully can be caught by life’s surprises—an accident or illness, losing a job or a place to live. Aggies Helping Aggies helps students stay in school through times of crisis.
Student Emergency Relief Aid (SERA)
The SERA program, formerly known as We Are Aggie Pride, offers financial awards to students to keep them in school and on track to graduation during emergency situations. Whether a student has lost a job, has car repairs or needs assistance with rent, SERA is available with financial awards that bridge the gap, and don't need to be repaid.
This program was created by students in 2011 during the Great Recession, to help other students in need. The founders, and our students today, believe no UC Davis student should to have to discontinue their education due to an emergency financial setback.

Senior Class Challenge
Since 1983, UC Davis seniors have left their mark on the university by supporting an area of greatest need on campus. This year, Aggies Helping Aggies is raising funds to support Aggie House, a new campus program that provides help to unhoused students.
For the Senior Class Challenge, we ask all UC Davis Seniors to give $20.22, in honor of their senior year, to the Aggie House to support fellow students in need.
