On April 28th, UCI hosted its fifth annual Giving Day. This year, the School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences dedicated their Giving Day proceeds to supporting our first-ever alumni-supported student scholarship and our White Coat fund.
The alumni-supported student scholarship was created by our Anteaters in Pharmacy chapter. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we were able to raise more than $4,000 to go toward supporting the next generation of pharmacy and pharmaceutical professionals.
Our White Coat fund was established this year as we welcome our first-ever PharmD cohort. Each $100 gift toward our White Coat fund will provide one student’s white coat and welcome package at our special White Coat ceremony in September.
As an additional touch, each white coat will be embroidered with words of encouragement from each donor. Overall, our 2021 Giving Day was a great success and we look forward to all the new traditions we will be starting in the future.
As always, we thank our School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences donors and alumni for supporting us as we begin our new journey as a school.
