Be a Give Day Volunteer!

While Aggies everywhere are thinking of their alma mater on April 23rd, UC Davis will be holding its sixth annual Give Day – a 29-hour fundraising drive that illustrates philanthropy’s impact on research and education at UC Davis!  

Volunteer opportunities include:
Give Day Information Booth Volunteer (2 hour blocks between 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.)  Spread the word about the power of philanthropy by volunteering at one of our Give Day booths! Volunteers will be asked to engage passers-by and educate them about Give Day and how it benefits not just UC Davis and UC Davis Health, but the world! We will also have a variety of Give Day promo items to hand out. After signing up, volunteers will receive further outreach and instruction via email. All volunteers will also receive their own Give Day t-shirt!

Give Day Booth Locations:  - Vanderhoef Quad (near Walter Buehler Alumni Center) and lawn across from Shields Library, in front of Walker Hall.  

Note: a brief orientation will be scheduled approximately one week before Give Day for all who have registered.
