In order to further its mission of education, research and public service, UC Merced depends on the support of private donors. The Chancellor's Associates is a premier group of leadership donors and dedicated friends who believe a dynamic university is critical to the future vitality of the San Joaquin Valley.
Since 2001, this loyal group comprised of UC alumni, staff, faculty, business leaders, educators and community leaders, have helped to establish UC Merced in the surrounding communities. Friends who contribute $1,000 or more annually to the Chancellor's Associates Fund support the university's greatest needs, including student scholarships, fellowships, research, capital projects and other areas of critical need.
Your participation as a Chancellor's Associate will play an integral role in shaping the UC Merced community, and most importantly, it will help ensure the success of our students.
