Be a part of Giving Day at UC Santa Cruz

Giving Day is an energized 24-hour online fundraising drive to support UC Santa Cruz students, faculty, and campus programs.  It's a day for people everywhere to come together in a circle of giving for UC Santa Cruz.

Be a part of something big. Join the fun on March 8 for Giving Day 2017.

Generous donors provide incentives to make the day a success. They create matching funds that increase the impact of gifts to individual projects and they support challenge funds that inspire friendly competition among project teams.

Do you have a project, club, or program that you want to fund? This is your chance to meet your fundraising goals and engage your community of supporters.

Check out the nearly 3,000 gifts made last year on Giving Day.
