Women & Philanthropy
From Mission to Movement: Support Our Women & Philanthropy Impact Award!

This Give Day, Women & Philanthropy is on a mission to raise funds for our annual $25,000 W&P Impact Award! This prestigious award honors UC Davis faculty or staff who champion the advancement of women leaders, embody exceptional leadership qualities, and contribute significantly to our local and global university communities.

Each year's awardee has the privilege of directing this $25,000 to a UC Davis fund of their choice, fueling initiatives ranging from student scholarships to women's health research, athletics, the arts, and beyond. Every contribution matters, as it paves the way for an inclusive culture of philanthropy.

Join us in celebrating the visionaries who inspire the next generation of leaders and leave an indelible mark on our world. Your support to Women & Philanthropy is not just a gift - it's commitment to creating a legacy of impact and empowerment.

“Success is not about how much money you make, it's about the difference you make in people's lives.”
