Giving thanks!

October 01, 2020

On September 30, 2020 UC Santa Cruz hosted its fifth annual Giving Day campaign, a 24-hour online fundraising event.


Sociology@UCSantaCruz raised money to support our students and their continued work in challenging dominant norms and structures through established scholarships.

Together, we raised $2220! We could not have done this without YOU! Thank you, for your commitment to UC Santa Cruz and public sociology!
