Give to Nutrition

As new scientific discoveries reinforce that nutrition is central to maintaining health and reducing disease risk, this is an exciting time to be a part of the science and application of nutritional knowledge. When you support the UC Davis Nutrition Department through a gift, you are investing in the future for our entire community. Your gift will support innovative research, support student education and training, and improve our outreach efforts that share new knowledge about nutrition and health

Gifts through our online giving forms may be unrestricted for general support or be directed to one of the other specific programs noted below.

  • Nutrition Student Support
