Your Impact

From alumni to parents to faculty and beyond, UCI has many generous supporters, and we are grateful for every one. 

We believe that together we can positively change the lives of our students and make UCI the university that all others emulate in the space of student success. You help us do all that and more. 

Some donors give large amounts, others small; some of our most loyal supporters choose instead to give of themselves, by volunteering, mentoring, or building connections with other parts of the UCI community. People give for many different reasons. Alumni, parents, students, faculty and staff, volunteers—all do their part, and we are proud to share their stories with you.
