On May 12-13, UC San Diego honors its founding year with 1,960 minutes (32 hours) of caring, sharing and giving. During that time, alumni, faculty, staff, students and community members will come together as they are invited to choose a cause, tell their stories and make a gift to directly support a better future for all. 

As an advocate for UC San Diego and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, you're already an energetic force for your alma mater. Here's your chance to amplify your impact as a Ambassador!

What does a Ambassador do? Ambassadors leverage their personal and professional networks to help raise as much support for these fundraising goals as possible:

  • Give One: Support with a video or gift of care on May 12-13
  • Get Five: Spread the word about UC San Diego's Day of Caring! Call, email, and text friends, family and colleagues to get five people to join you by making a video or a gift of support!
  • Go Social: Share on social media! Use the #UCSDcares hashtag throughout your social media networks to spread the Triton care, compassion, courage and support. 


There will be dozens of funds to support, including the Scripps Institution of Oceanography Excellent Fund & Birch Aquarium Excellence Fund. Your help drawing attention to this effort is appreciated! Sign up to be a Ambassador or explore early giving here:
