About the UCI Fund

About the UCI Fund

The UCI Fund provides the university with the flexibility to support emerging needs and opportunities on campus. At a time when less than 10 percent of UCI’s budget comes from the state, your gift of any size is not only a vote of confidence in UCI’s great work but also an investment in the people and projects touched by Anteaters everywhere.

Why give?

When you give to the UCI Fund, you are making a significant and immediate impact on the university. Your gift to the UCI Fund helps support one of these three areas across campus.

Student Support

UCI is committed to providing a world-class education that is both accessible and affordable for our nation’s most talented students.

  • Gifts to the UCI Fund provide scholarships and opportunities to deserving Anteaters.
Alexandra Jimenez "I have so many ambitions for the future; and, thanks to generous scholarship support, they are within reach. Coming from a low-income family, I am grateful to all those who have donated so that I could achieve my dream of attending a four-year university like UC Irvine."

Alexandra J., Anthropology Major

Faculty Excellence

UCI faculty members not only prepare, challenge and inspire our students but also forge new ideas and discoveries that will change the world.

  • Gifts to the UCI Fund support faculty recruitment and supply the resources they need to advance their disciplines and shape the minds of our future leaders.

Campus Resources

Campus organizations, state-of-the-art technology and personalized mentoring add up to create a UCI experience that is truly second to none.

  • Gifts to the UCI Fund elevate and enrich campus life at one of our nation’s premier public research universities.
