Today is an exciting opportunity for Anteaters to celebrate our winning traditions and invest in our future. For over 50 years, UCI student-athletes have proudly represented their university. Our Anteater student-athletes have won 28 National Championships and 85 Conference Championships, and consist of 528 All-American honorees, 56 Olympians and over 4,000 Scholar-Athletes. As we strive to build upon these accomplishments, it is our goal to elevate UC Irvine Athletics to further national prominence.



To compete at the highest level of NCAA Division I Athletics, your generosity and support is more critical than ever. On UCI Giving Day, there are a number of donation opportunities to enhance the student-athlete experience. These choices include the Department of Athletics and our Sport Specific programs. Your gift will provide support to the following areas:

  • Student-Athlete Scholarships
  • Academic Support
  • Recruiting Efforts
  • Facility Enhancements
  • Sports Medicine
  • Equipment Upgrades
  • Strength and Conditioning
  • Other Budget Relieving Expenses


Now is the time to invest in our future. Join us on UCI Giving Day and make a difference in the lives of our student-athletes. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a difference!
