Day of Giving

Save the Date to Earn Your Tiger Stripes
November 15 at 11:15 a.m. - November 16 at 11:16 a.m.
First Ever Day of Giving - #PacificGives  

We are excited to announce our first ever Day of Giving, #PacificGives. Starting on November 15 at 11:15 a.m., we will launch #PacificGives - a 24-hour (and 1 minute) online challenge, to make an incredible difference in the lives of our students.

The goal is simple: to inspire Tigers everywhere to come together, demonstrate pride for Pacific, and provide essential funding to support Pacific students in Stockton, Sacramento, and San Francisco. To monitor our progress, visit on Tuesday, November 15 after 11:15 a.m. You can also follow along on our social media pages to watch the fun unfold.

The Gladys L. Benerd College is proud to join in this extraordinary effort. Our current funding priorities are:

  • The Educator's Impact Fund - This fund supports the success of our students in initiatives that provide rich field experiences: engage them in professional conferences and development opportunities; embed them in professional learning communities; provide both summer and year-long opportunities for them to teach and support innovative practice; provide them high-quality faculty mentorship and guidance; and collect rich and thorough data on the impact of our work.

  • Friends of Education Endowed Scholarship - With the dollar-for-dollar Powell Match opportunity launched exclusively at Pacific in late 2013, a small group of passionate Benerd supporters came together to establish this endowed scholarship. With their collective gifts of $50,000 now all gifts to this fund will be doubled by the Powell Fund. Every year, in perpetuity, this scholarship will recognize worthy Benerd students for their hard work and dedication to the field of education.
  • Pacific Food Pantry - We have also joined forces with the Pacific Food Pantry to help spread the word about the need for both food donations and financial support of this important resources for our food insecure students. Donations of food can be dropped off in the Benerd School lobby or at the Cowell Wellness Center.

As always, you can also choose a priority that is most meaningful to you. Just click on the "Give Now button" on the Day of Giving site to make your gift. Together - in just one day - our community can help strengthen Pacific by supporting the university's ability to provide the best possible experiences for Pacific's current and future students.
