Discover how Advancement drives change.

At the University of California San Diego, challenging convention is our most cherished tradition. As one of the top 15 research universities in the world, UC San Diego is blazing a path to a better future.

Philanthropic investment in UC San Diego has the power to change the world by empowering our bold community, motivating breakthroughs and driving new technologies to market. At UC San Diego Advancement, this fundamental idea inspires support from and fosters meaningful relationships with our alumni, parents, staff, friends and community partners.

In March 2017, the university announced the public phase of the Campaign for UC San Diego, a $2 billion comprehensive fundraising effort to transform the student experience, our campus and, ultimately, the world. Together with the support of alumni, parents, and friends, we will impact lives here and across the globe.
