Philanthropy and Strategic Partnerships

UC Merced Elevating the Brand

Dedicated to advancing the university’s mission of teaching, research and public service, UC Merced’s Philanthropy and Strategic Partnerships Department creates and maintains strong relationships with campus partners including individuals, corporations and foundations to inspire philanthropic support for UC Merced students, faculty and programs. In collaboration with the schools, research institutes and university leadership, Philanthropy and Strategic Partnerships works closely with our partners to identify meaningful opportunities through gifts, endowments and estate planning that will have lasting and transformative effects on UC Merced.
