Thanks A Billion
Supporters of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences stepped up in a big way to help UC Davis achieve the goal of raising more than $1 billion in its first comprehensive fundraising campaign.
Through March 2014, CA&ES raised more than $222.6 million. The support is vital to help students and faculty in scholarship, research, and instruction. Our thanks go to many people like Bill and Linda Sullivan, who show their ongoing support for UC Davis students with the William and Linda Sullivan Environmental Sciences Scholarship Fund.
“For decades, UC Davis has been the unquestioned leader in environmental and agricultural research and teaching, and is uniquely qualified to address tomorrow’s challenges in this area,” Bill Sullivan said. “It is an honor for us to support undergraduate and graduate students who will be the leaders of the future.”
The Campaign for UC Davis counts all gifts and pledges to every college, school, department, and program across the university. It also includes grants awarded by philanthropic organizations and nonprofit foundations.
“Bill and Linda’s gift was transformative to the environmental sciences and the students who will benefit every year,” said CA&ES dean Helene Dillard. “Their generosity—along with more than 8,500 donors who have given to our college during this campaign—is deeply appreciated and will have a lasting impact on California for generations to come.”
