The costs of operating an Intercollegiate Athletics program are escalating, some faster than the rate of inflation. For decades, UC Davis Athletics has relied on the annual generosity of its supporters to meet these needs. Endowments offer perpetual financial growth that will strengthen the Aggies for the future.
Program and scholarship endowments for UC Davis Athletics provide the resources needed to attract talented student-athletes, retain successful coaches, and improve the Aggies' competitive status nationally. A named endowment can be established with a minimum of $50,000 and designated for a specific sport or purpose.
Creating a culture of giving to endowments is a priority goal for UC Davis Athletics. Endowments and memorial scholarships will ensure the financial stability needed to enhance the student-athlete experience at UC Davis for generations to come.
