Create a post
To create any post, just tell a brief story that conveys why you support what you support at UC Davis and include a link to the challenge or the page you want people to support. Tell people very briefly the impact they will have if they support the program and how their gift will make a difference. Consider telling a brief personal story how the program impacted you, and how you think it will make a difference for others.
Social media profile images
Social media cover images
Cover images for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn have been formatted specifically to fit the dimension of each service’s cover image. Do not use interchangeably: using a graphic formatted for one service as the cover image on an alternate service will have an undesirable outcome.
Social media graphic posts
Promote giving areas or challenge gifts by sharing custom Give Day graphics featuring your own photographs. Templates have been created as Photoshop files and Canva templates:
- Square social media graphic - 1080 x 1080px
- Horizontal social media graphic - 1920 x 1080px
Note: if saving the images below results in low resolution, blurry image files, please download high-resolution images at the shared Box folder instead.
