February 2015: Student Engagement and Philanthropy Month

February is Student Engagement and Philanthropy Month, where college campuses across the nation celebrate their philanthropic organizations and show students ways to get involved. Here’s what we’re doing at UC Davis!

  • Donate now by clicking GIVE NOW; make sure to mention your department when you give.
  • After you give, pass on the challenge to a rival department.


Whichever department has donated the most by the end of February will win a mention in our monthly newsletter, departmental bragging rights, and a trophy to display in the department!

Currently the Physics department is in the lead!
