Support our community members in need for Give Day and Employee Giving Month!
Each year our generous UC Davis and UC Davis Health employees donate more than $3.7 million to a wide range of programs they find meaningful. Whatever program you choose to support, please know your gift of any size on Give Day makes a tremendous difference.
This April, because so many of our fellow employees and students are in need, we are encouraging gifts to programs that support student emergency housing and the Staff Emergency Fund.
The Staff Emergency Fund provides quick cash awards of up to $1,000 to staff members experiencing urgent financial hardship. Established in Fall 2020 in response to COVID-19, the awards have helped more than 50 employees cover emergencies related to housing, food, utilities, transportation and funeral costs. The fund needs replenishment in order to keep providing this crucial help. Click here to support the Davis campus employees. Click here to support the Health campus employees.
Aggie House is a new transitional housing shelter for students facing homelessness—a growing problem at UC Davis and other campuses nationwide. The student-run facility provides shelter, food, and help finding permanent housing, jobs, food stamps and other assistance so that students can focus on academics and completing their degrees. The UC Davis Student Foundation, Aggies Helping Aggies, is supporting Aggie House as this year’s Senior Class Challenge, offering employees an opportunity join hands with students in supporting this important program.

Aggie Compass supports emergency housing for students through the College Focused Rapid Rehousing program. It provides safe, stable housing for houseless students as well as a meal plan and intense case management designed to promote holistic and academic success. This year, the UC Davis Retirees’ Association and the Emeriti Association are mobilizing support for the Aggie Compass Housing Support Fund. Click here to support.
Please give today so we can support more of our staff and students experiencing hardships. A gift of any size truly makes a difference.
Thank you for your support, now and always.
ABOUT DAVIS AS UC IT
Davis as UC it encourages all of our employees at UC Davis Health and the UC Davis main campus to find a cause personally meaningful to them at UC Davis and support it.
Gifts can be given on Give Day and during Employee Giving Month each April. Another option is a monthly payroll deduction, which offers the steady support our programs need most.
EMPLOYEE GIVING MONTH (APRIL)
Each year, we recognize generous colleagues who support and promote a culture of philanthropy at UC Davis! In 2022, we are highlighting staff and faculty who have made a positive impact. We're delighted to recognize Emily Scivoletto, Jennifer Moylan, Ernesto Sandoval, and Jay Rosenheim.
Emily Scivoletto is the senior assistant dean for Student Affairs at the School of Law. “I give to UC Davis, and to the law students at King Hall specifically, because I appreciate how hard it is for students to finance their education and because our world needs kind, ethical problem-solvers in the legal profession.” Thank you, Emily!
Jennifer Moylan is a study abroad program coordinator and advisor in Global Affairs. “Our students’ stories of their transformative intercultural experiences inspire me to invest in global learning at UC Davis.” Through her work she promotes inclusiveness and respect for the diversity of cultures, values and beliefs that make up our global university. Thank you, Jennifer!
Ernesto Sandoval ’96 is the manager of the UC Davis Botanical Conservatory, for his generosity. “I strongly believe in the mission of the Botanical Conservatory as the place where a large diversity of live plants are grown for classes.” Thank you, Ernesto!
Jay Rosenheim ’83 is a distinguished professor in the Department of Entomology and Nematology and Center for Population Biology. "I give to the annual campaign and have done so for a long time because I did my undergraduate education here and had a fabulous experience. Having been both a student and a teacher here, I appreciate what a great institution UC Davis is – definitely worthy of support." Thank you, Jay!
