Giving Day 2021

Giving Day is Coming Soon!

Ready. Set. GIVE!

24 hours to be the change. On November 3, 2021, join fellow alumni, staff, faculty, parents, and friends from around the world as we unite for 24 hours to support UC Santa Cruz and promote slug success. Starting at 12:00 am on November 3 and ending at 11:59 pm you have the opportunity to maximize your impact, and to join what has become a transformational day for the campus. 

Find what inspires you in one (or more!) of our 130 projects that span the entirety of the campus. Help your favorite project secure additional funding by participating during challenge hours or by helping them cross a match-initiating milestone. 

Make your gift today!

Ready to give now? Consider giving to the Giving Day Challenge Fund. Challenges create fun competition between participating groups and are additional opportunities to raise bonus funds. Want to support a specific project? Consider making a project specific match or challenge. Matches and challenges can be targeted to benefit the project of your choice.
