About

UC Merced continues to achieve historic milestones. From recently ranking #28 among all public universities per U.S. News and World Report, to enrolling the largest first-year class this past fall and introducing the new BS-to-MD medical education pathway, to expanding its automatic admissions program and offering several new majors, UC Merced is on the map and off the charts! We hope these accomplishments inspire and invigorate you to join us this year and Give to UC Merced.  

 

The generous support you and other members of our Bobcat Family provide annually ensures that more than 9,000 current students and countless more who will make the campus their future home have the necessary resources to make new discoveries, collaborate with others to enact change, and gain a deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them. 

 

Your giving also supports the vital work hundreds of faculty and staff members carry out each and every day to provide students with a world-class education that only the University of California can deliver. With your support, Bobcats have access to programs, research opportunities, and many initiatives to help drive their success even long after graduating from UC Merced. 

 

For the second year in a row, gifts raised through Give to UC Merced will also impact the university’s first comprehensive fundraising campaign, Boldly Forward: The Campaign for UC Merced. The university community is close to passing the halfway mark of its goal of $200 million by 2030, but we can only achieve that feat with your help. 

 

You have the power to move UC Merced Boldly Forward. Gifts of all amounts make an incredible impact, and you can rest assured that your giving supports the programs that are most meaningful to you, including scholarships, fellowships, academics and research, medical education, athletics, and so many others. Thank you in advance for deepening your commitment to our wonderful university!
