Thank you to our generous Giving Day donors!

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Wednesday, March 8, was the second annual UC Santa Cruz Giving Day. Giving Day is a 24-hour online fundraising drive to support UC Santa Cruz students, faculty, and campus programs. The IBSC raised $1,170 with our Giving Day Project, "Support Undergraduate Stem Cell Researchers."  This money was raised to send a group of UC Santa Cruz undergraduate stem cell researchers to a Stem Cell Research Retreat that will be held jointly with UC San Francisco, UC Berkeley, and UC Santa Cruz in April. This will be a fantastic opportunity for UC Santa Cruz students to participate in scientific discussions on the latest findings in their field and to foster potential collaborations with their Bay Area UC colleagues. Thanks to our generous donors, six additional students are able to attend the retreat. UC Santa Cruz will now be sending more than 50 participants!
