Office of Development

Over the years, private support has become increasingly important to public institutions of higher education. The Office of Development is responsible for generating philanthropic support that will ensure the continued growth and perpetuity of UC Merced by:

  • Serving our constituents with the utmost respect and personal integrity.
  • Providing meaningful, ethical and timely solutions that maximize the donor's goals while serving the university's mission.
  • Bringing heightened awareness of UC Merced's vision as a premiere student-centered research university serving a culturally diverse community.

Our office partners with individuals, corporations and foundations in supporting a wide range of important activities including capital projects, faculty support, academic priorities, recreation and scholarships.

Your gift to UC Merced will make a lasting impact on our students, the communities we live in and the world. We invite our friends and supporters to join us in demonstrating how the power of knowledge can transform lives and improve quality of life.
