About the campaign
The campaign’s quiet phase began on July 1, 2006, following the approval by the UC Office of the President and endorsement from the UC Davis Foundation Board of Trustees. During the campaign’s quiet phase, more than $605 million was committed toward the campaign’s $1 billion goal. On September 16, 2010, the UC Board of Regents voted to authorize the public phase of the campaign. UC Davis formally launched the public phase on October 22, 2010, with a campus and communitywide celebration at the Robert and Margrit Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts. The campaign concluded on May 31, 2014, with more than $1.13 billion raised from nearly 110,000 donors.
