Give to Picnic Day

Friends of Picnic Day Endowment

In May 2011, Tom and Meg Stallard, both former Picnic Day board members, were honored to receive the UC Davis Foundation’s Charles Soderquist Award, which is given in recognition of volunteer leadership and support of philanthropy at UC Davis. The Soderquist Award comes with a $5,000 prize, which recipients designate to the university program of their choosing. Tom and Meg chose to use the prize to establish the Friends of Picnic Day Endowment. “We have established the Friends of Picnic Day Endowment with the hope that it will help refocus the event on its original purpose – to provide a day of fun that unites campus and community and showcases the many contributions that UC Davis is making in the region, across the country, and around the world,” the Stallards said.

Throughout the past year, a number of others have made additional gifts to the Friends of the Picnic Day Endowment. Most notably, the endowment recently received a $38,000 gift from the Victor Chu Estate. Coming back to campus for Picnic Day with his family was an annual tradition that Dr. Chu, a double alumnus, loved.

If you are interested in making a gift to the Friends of the Picnic Day Endowment or making a donation to Picnic Day you can do so online. Your support will join a tradition that has been vital to making Picnic Day the cherished event that it is.  If you make a donation of $25 or more your name will be listed in the Schedule of Events.

Special thanks to all our donors!
