Day of Giving Nets $40,000 for Scholarships

December 16, 2014

On Dec. 2, UC Merced alumni, parents, staff, faculty members and friends of the campus came together for the first #GivingTuesdayUCMerced, in an effort to create a positive effect on the lives of students.

In all, nearly 170 people donated more than $11,000 in just 24 hours. Thanks to a three-to-one match provided by Wells Fargo and Foster Poultry Farms, more than $40,000 will benefit student scholarships.
