We have a tremendous vision for our Arboretum Waterway that goes well beyond the structural improvements currently underway and funded by campus. LEARN MORE
Imagine the Waterway being cared for by passionate Learning by Leading students as they gain experience managing and enhancing this important and complex system, including planting the banks of the Waterway with thousands of native species. Doesn’t that sound wonderful? To launch these types of programs, improvements and more, we hope to raise $50,000 during our participation in two upcoming fundraising campaigns that together we are calling Waterway WOW!
The Waterway WOW! campaign launches during UC Davis’s Big Give, a campus-focused giving day, which runs from noon on April 21 to 5pm on April 22. The campaign continues with a social media countdown spotlighting trivia questions about the Arboretum Waterway designed to educate and improve community knowledge about the history and future of the Waterway. The Waterway WOW! campaign then concludes on May 4 during the Big Day of Giving, our region’s community-wide giving day.
Watch for news about contests, giving opportunities and other ways to participate throughout the campaign. Your gifts during this timeframe will help vegetate the banks of the waterway in the area where construction is currently taking place and provide funding for students to lead this instrumental planting project. In addition, local families that have already pledged gifts will match your donation! Thank you for considering a gift to this campaign!
If you’d like to be a social media “Ambassador” to help us spread the word about this exciting campaign, have other questions, or would like to offer a matching gift challenge, please contact Suzanne Ullensvang at firstname.lastname@example.org.
