Everywhere you look on the UC Merced campus, there are examples of
private support in action.
UC Merced donors are a diverse group with uniquely personal reasons for supporting the university. They are alumni, friends, faculty, staff, parents, corporations and foundations — all united by their belief that UC Merced transforms lives, engages in advanced research and enriches our community, the state, the nation and the world.
The contest for top honors in UC Merced’s Grad Slam competition will be even more intense this year thanks to a generous donation from Jane Binger, Ed.D., and her husband, Robert Bernstein, M.D.
The University of California, Merced, has broken its own fundraising record, bringing in more than $20.8 million during the 2015-16 fiscal year — a more than 300 percent increase over last year.
