Global Community Emergency Fund

In Global Affairs we believe in the value all members of our global community bring to UC Davis.  

Unfortunately, some of those members have been impacted by disasters and crises around the world and they require critical support. This is why Global Affairs has launched the UC Davis Global Community Emergency Fund. 

Funds donated to the Global Community Emergency Fund will support immediate and essential needs for our UC Davis community members, including housing assistance, transportation, utilities, and other basic living expenses and/or educational expenses. 

Over the past year, many natural disasters and human-made crises have emerged in Afghanistan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Ethiopia, Haiti, Iran, Myanmar, Philippines and in Ukraine, along with long-term struggles in Congo, Lebanon, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen, just to name a few, which have destroyed the livelihoods and hopes of many.  

A team from across UC Davis including School of Law Associate Dean Beth Greenwood, and from Global Affairs Vice Provost and Dean Joanna Regulska, Associate Vice Provost Michael Lazzara and Senior Immigration Advisor Kim Haky have been supporting threatened scholars and students and distributing funds donated to the Global Community Emergency Fund. Notably, we were able to double the impact of the donations made by leveraging matching funding opportunities and working with numerous organizations.  

Your gift of $5 or more, can bring help, security, aid, stability and hope to our UC Davis global community. Throughout the month of October, we hope to raise at least $5,000 through Crowdfund UC Davis.  

Our most urgent need at this time is to support UC Davis students, scholars and their families affected by the crises, and to be ready for when the next disaster strikes. 

We encourage you to join us in helping the UC Davis global community at large by making a gift to the Global Community Emergency Fund! 

Thank you for helping take care of our global community!
