About

Invest in the future of our work, the future of our people, and our students โ€“ the future leaders of the world!


We invite you to Give to UC Merced to directly support deserving students, striving to make this world a better place; faculty and staff who are working tirelessly to provide our scholars with a world-class education; student success programs, ensuring that UC Merced students, no matter their background, can achieve academic excellence; and so much more.

Gifts of any amount matter and you can be sure that your giving directly impacts the funds that are most meaningful to you, including scholarships, fellowships, academics and research, student success, and others (learn more below). Our goal is to reach 500 donors and raise $100,000 by December 31. We hope to count on you!

#GiveToUCMerced to support:

Scholarships: Ensure that all students, no matter their socioeconomic background, are able to receive a world-class education from a top 100 university.

Fellowships: Enable advanced scholars the opportunity to earn a graduate degree, while gaining hands-on experience in teaching and research.

Academics & Research: Support the School of Engineering, School of Natural Sciences, School of Social Sciences, Humanities & Arts, Graduate Division, Medical Education, the Black Excellence Fellowship Fund and many others.

Student Success: Fund a variety of crucial student initiatives, including the Student Emergency Fund; the Office of Leadership, Service & Career; and Athletics โ€“ just to name a few.

UC Merced Arts: Provide incredible opportunities for the campus and community to engage with and directly benefit from the arts, including the 2021 Class Gift to install a commemorative mural.

UC Merced Annual Fund: Unsure where you giving will have the greatest impact? Consider the Annual Fund, as it provides immediate support towards a variety of programs and services that impact students, faculty, staff, and the campus โ€“ where your funding is most needed.
