At UC Irvine, our talented faculty and students work hard to generate new knowledge, find creative solutions to our world’s grand challenges, and serve our local and global communities in significant and far-reaching ways. But we don’t do it alone. We do it through the generosity of alumni, parents and friends – like you – who want to make a difference.


Parent and Family Engagement

As some of our students’ strongest supporters, parents and family members are valuable partners in the work we do to inspire success and innovation.

Chancellor's Club

Established in 1972, the Chancellor’s Club supports first-generation student programs, undergraduate scholarships and graduate fellowship awards.

Class Gift Competition

Each year, the senior class chooses an area to support at UC Irvine for the class wide giving competition. Which class year will have the highest giving?

Telephone Outreach Program

Staffed by UC Irvine students, the Telephone Outreach Program (TOP) is committed to engaging with the UC Irvine community and raising philanthropic support.

Faculty and Staff Giving

Faculty and staff already invest their time and talent into the university and its students. Now they have the opportunity to make an even larger impact.


Your gift of any size is not only a vote of confidence in UC Irvine’s great work but also an investment in our students, faculty and researchers as they strive to create a brilliant future for our community and the world.
