Big Day of Giving – thank you donors!

Thank you! We are grateful for the generosity of everyone who has supported the UC Davis Arboretum and Public Garden over the past two months. We know it has been a challenging time, but we've tried our best to be there for the community by keeping the gardens open for everyone. Thank you for being there for us by supporting the Arboretum and Public Garden with your gifts and encouraging words.

We are so appreciative that over $62,000 in gifts were pledged or given during our spring giving campaign season. The majority of these community donations to the Arboretum and Public Garden were made in association with two spring giving events: UC Davis Give Day on April 17-18 and the regional Big Day of Giving on May 7.

Gifts are supporting immediate needs including the work of our student environmental interns in the Learning by Leading program and our ongoing work to engage our community with programs, many of them virtual these days, and the beautiful gardens and plant collections for enjoyment, recreation and rejuvenation.

Thank you again to everyone - volunteers, Friends members, partners and visitors - for your kindness.

We gratefully acknowledge the donors who contributed during Big Day of Giving
