Philanthropy is defined as goodwill to fellow members of the human race, especially active effort to promote human welfare.

Supporters of the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences are indeed philanthropists.  We are continually awed by the generosity of our alumni and friends as they give of their time and financial resources to further our mission of producing a better world, healthier lives, and an improved standard of living for everyone through our research, education and outreach efforts.  Below are just a few examples of how giving to UC Davis and the college has positively impacted our donors.
