volunteers and staff with thank you speech bubble
Arboretum and Public Garden volunteers and staff show their appreciation for all the donors who gave to support our gardens and programs during our region’s first Big Day of Giving on May 6th.

Thank you! We made history!

Thank you to everyone who gave to the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden during our region’s 24-hour Big Day of Giving on May 6th! We set a goal of raising $5,000 from 100 individual donors, but, thanks to the generosity of current and new donors, members, volunteers, and our own staff we raised $7,487 from 115 donors. This day was not only historic for our organization, it was historic for the Sacramento region—394 participating non-profit organizations raised over 3 million dollars in one day!

The funds we raised will be used to support our GATEways public education programs including our Valley-wise gardening outreach, to grow our “Learning by Leading” initiative, which enables undergraduate students to develop innovative educational programs for underserved children and families, and to support the expansion of our community volunteer program.

Thank you again to the generosity of the donors listed below and to all of our loyal supporters who give in whichever way they can—with their time, creativity, words of encouragement, or donations. Together we are creating an exemplary place of beauty, learning, and environmental stewardship.
