Parent Gift Continues a Tradition of Philanthropy for Alumna

If you take a walk around campus this fall, you might be surprised to see just how much has changed in the last few years— transformations that were made possible through donations to The Campaign for UCSD: Imagine What’s Next. MORE

Faculty-Staff Campaign

The hard work of current, former and retired faculty and staff has helped make UCSD one of the nation’s premier institutions of higher education, research and healthcare. Their donations to the Faculty-Staff Campaign are also making an important difference in the future of this campus and the people it serves. MORE

UCSD Libraries: Creating the Library of the Future

What first comes to mind when you think about the UCSD Libraries? Late night study sessions during exam week? Desperate quests for data to support a claim you made in a research paper? Or simply the awe you felt the first time you saw the Geisel Library looming on the campus landscape?

Known nationally for its distinctive collections, the UCSD Libraries are an important source of inspiration and enlightenment for our talented students, educators, scientists and artists.

In order to meet growing demand for its services, the UCSD Libraries depend on private donations. Support through The Campaign has helped the Libraries expand collections and strengthen programs for a community that is hungry for information and information technology.

For as little as $100, a volume can be added to the shelves. A gift of $10,000 or more, paid over five years, can establish a named collections endowment that will provide permanent funding for new materials. For more information, please contact the UCSD Libraries Development Office at (858) 822-4554 or email bbrink@ucsd.edu.
