UC DAVIS: Retirees' Association
"25 for 25" Campaign Continues

The UC Davis Retirees’ Association (UCDRA) “25 for 25” scholarship endowment campaign was launched at the fall retiree meeting on October 30, 2014. The first 25 in the name stands for the UCDRA 25th anniversary and the second 25 stands for the minimum of $25,000 that is required to establish an endowment. The endowment will fund an annual scholarship to be awarded to a career staff person who is pursuing his/her education while working at UC Davis. The UCDRA has been funding a UC Davis staff scholarship from member dues since 1999. The endowment will allow dues revenue to be used for other projects.

The initial goal of $25,000 needed to establish the endowment was just the beginning. Due to the generous donations of UC Davis retirees, the initial goal has been reached, and the fund continues to increase. The UCDRA will continue fundraising so that the endowment can be used to fund a larger scholarship and/or multiple annual awards. 

Your donation can make a difference.
