Ann E. Pitzer Study Abroad Endowment Challenge

Education Abroad Endowment Awards

Inspired by a lead gift of $1,000,000 from Ann E. Pitzer, 11 additional donors have stepped forward with endowment gifts of $25,000 or more to support financially challenged students who wish to study abroad. The goal is to find 40 donors to match or exceed Pitzer’s donation.

Of the 11 new donors, three are international from Japan, Taiwan and Italy. Five have current or emeritus UC Davis status and three are alumni of the university. All 11 share a common goal with Ann Pitzer—to help generations of UC Davis students study abroad as part of their UC Davis education.

Anyone who is inspired to meet the Ann E. Pitzer Study Abroad Endowment Challenge is invited to contact Robert Kerr (rakerr@ucdavis.edu) or donate at uoip.ucdavis.edu/giving. The Ann E. Pitzer Study Abroad Endowment is part of The Campaign for UC Davis, the university’s first comprehensive fundraising campaign that seeks to raise $1 billion from 100,000 donors.
