Welcome to College Relations & Development
The College of Letter and Science is fortunate to have a strong community of alumni, parents, and friends. We welcome your participation in our college events, giving programs, and volunteer work.
As the College of Letters and Science continues to grow, philanthropic support is the key to give students and faculty the best opportunities possible. We look forward to working with you, our generous supporters, in the coming years.
Philanthropic gifts help close the budget gap, making a difference for students, programs, faculty, research and facilities. Gifts to the college are often the tipping point for many fortunate recipients, whether that means a student not having to work full-time to pay for school, or a researcher purchasing equipment to make a discovery that wouldn't have been possible.
When you support UC Davis with a gift to the College of Letters and Science, you’re making an investment in the future.
The new classroom and recital hall building will be named the Ann E. Pitzer Center to honor the alumna who donated $5 million toward the building. Pitzer, a well-known California philanthropist, graduated from UC Davis in 1958 with a degree in home economics and was a longtime and active supporter of the university. She died in October 2014.
