GivingTuesday donors give over $89,000 to support UC ANR programs

As of 11:59 p.m. on Nov. 29, at the conclusion of GivingTuesday 2022, donors gave $89,477 for UC Cooperative Extension and the statewide programs, institutes and research centers that make up UC ANR. 

“This generous show of support demonstrates the impact our UC ANR colleagues are having in their communities and the value that donors place on our work,” said Emily Delk, director of annual giving and donor stewardship.

An additional $52,764 in incentive prizes will be distributed for qualifying gifts. These funds were given throughout the year for our ANR Incentive Fund, which is used to encourage donor engagement and increased giving to all UC ANR programs, and from donors to the California 4-H Foundation.

Some donors sent comments, such as “Thank you for all you do to serve LA County residents, schools, community gardens, hospitals, shelters, the incarcerated and more. And, for all you've given me;” and “Being a Los Angeles County MG is the best thing that has ever happened to me!”

“Now it's time to steward your donors,” Delk said. “Reach out to learn more about why they gave and how you can continue to engage them. Strengthening your relationships is an investment in building lasting support.”
