UC Merced Foundation Board of Trustees

UC Merced Foundation Board of Trustees

Founded in 2000, the UC Merced Foundation is led by a volunteer fundraising board that helps to promote and increase private philanthropic support, advocates for the university, and manages a portion of the university's endowment.

UC Merced's Foundation Board of Trustees includes some of the university's most enthusiastic supporters and advisors. The primary objective and purpose of the board is to raise and administer private gifts and grants to assist in the promotion and financial support of the university’s teaching, research and public service activities.

The board meets three times per year.

This site provides meeting and member information for trustee members only. For more information on the UC Merced Foundation, please contact Virginia Lerer at (209) 228-4401 or
