Employee and Annual Giving

At UC Davis Health System, we work together to advance health in extraordinary ways. As an employee, you are in a unique position to impact our region not only through your dedicated service, but also through your investments in research, teaching and patient care.

The Employee Giving Program celebrates employees and acknowledges the critical role they play in securing financial support simply by doing what they do best: improving lives and transforming health care.

Annually, employee gifts support the next generation of physicians, ground breaking research, clinical programs, and just about every aspect of the health system you can imagine!

Making a Difference is Easy!

  • Payroll Deductions: Automatic payroll deduction makes giving easy and affordable for everyone. The minimum payroll commitment is $5.00 per paycheck, per fund, for six months. Everyone who signs up receives a token of appreciation, annual luncheon invitations, and other communications and opportunities throughout the year.
