Give Day 2021

UC Davis Give Day 2021

Give Day is UC Davis' annual 29-hour online fundraising drive to support our students, faculty, and programs. Our goal is to connect with current donors in a fun and innovative way, as well as to engage alumni, friends, parents, and students. Give Day 2021 will be held at noon on April 16 and ends at 5 p.m. on April 17. This is a great time to join others in support of graduate students and postdoctoral scholars! You can participate in Give Day by donating directly to Graduate Studies on Give Day or by becoming a social ambassador. 

Support Graduate Studies with a Give Day Gift 

This year, you can choose from multiple opportunities that directly support graduate students and postdoctoral scholars including Graduate Fellowships, Graduate Student Basic Needs, and GradPathways Institute For Professional Development. Give to Graduate Studies here. 

Become a Give Day Social Ambassador

Social Ambassadors leverage their networks to advocate on behalf of Graduate Studies on Give Day. Social Ambassadors help us spread the word to friends, family, colleagues, and others in their social circle. As a social ambassador, you will message your networks and post about the event on your social media accounts to help broaden the reach of our Give Day. The Give Day campaign provides you with everything you need to easily post and share the event. In the days leading up to UC Davis Give Day, please encourage your friends, colleagues, family, and followers to give to Graduate Studies and UC Davis. Being a social ambassador does not require you to give any money. All you have to do is help spread the word! 

Funds Raised Directly Support Graduate Students 

Graduate Studies social ambassadors will help us raise money for the following funds that will directly impact graduate students:

  • Graduate Student Fellowship Fund
  • Graduate Student Basic Needs Fund
  • Graduate Student Emergency Fund
  • Other funds that support Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Scholars
