• OUR SHAPING THE FUTURE CAMPAIGN

In partnership with 113,071 of you, we’ve surpassed our $1 billion campaign goal and raised a grand total of $1,013,853,274. We’re now the youngest university in the country ever to complete a $1 billion fundraising campaign.

BY BELIEVING IN OUR

VISION OF A BETTER TOMORROW

YOU HAVE HELPED US CHANGE THE WORLD.

At UCI, thinking differently is in our DNA. Our extraordinary founding faculty came to Irvine 50 years ago to shape the future of public education. They dared to think big and imagine the impossible, passing on the spirit of creativity and innovation that motivates us today. A half-century later, we’re celebrating two milestones: our 50th anniversary and the successful completion of our $1 billion Shaping the Future campaign.




You made it all possible.

A Brilliant Future

for us all.

When we launched the campaign, we were united by a singular focus to make tomorrow better than today, for this generation and for generations to come. Thanks to your generosity, the campaign has touched virtually every aspect of the university and made an impact on the lives of countless people beyond our borders.

With your support, we’re inspiring global leaders, improving health, sustaining the planet, supporting students and achieving breakthroughs in the science of learning and memory. We’ve highlighted some of our stories for you.

$1 Billion Hard at Work

Your gifts have supported research, education and clinical practice that saves lives, restores sight and repairs the world. In addition to tripling the UCI endowment, you have also funded more than 500 scholarships and graduate fellowships and endowed over 50 academic chairs campuswide.

Thank You!
YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS HAVE

SHAPED THE FUTURE

OF OUR CAMPUS, OUR COMMUNITY AND OUR PLANET.

We set our sights high, determined to tackle some of the major issues of the time with philanthropic support. To make the greatest impact, we concentrated on five themes:

Looking Ahead





Your investments in UCI have paved the way for more eye-opening innovations and life-changing discoveries. As we celebrate the last 50 years, we also imagine the next 50. You have inspired us to aim high so that we can continue to make real differences in the world.



“We will reach new heights of excellence in social impact by maintaining our culture of innovation and embracing the power of different, of doing things differently. Our past is tremendously exciting, but it is but a prologue for great things to come.”
