Transformational gifts for extraordinary care

Individuals, foundations and corporations can have a significant impact on UC Davis Health. As the University of California, Davis is a state-supported institution, transformational gifts from cash, securities, real estate or other tangible personal property provide our programs with impactful and enduring support.

UC Davis Health provides donors with many opportunities for public recognition and naming opportunities. However you choose to help, your participation will make a world of difference, enabling UC Davis Health to continue to build a brighter future for the Sacramento community — and beyond.

No matter where your passion lies, UC Davis Health offers comprehensive services delivered by enthusiastic professionals.
