UC Merced.......Lives United

"I Don't Just Wear the Shirt, I Live It!!" --------------------------- Join us in living united today, benefiting the United Way of Merced County.


Since 2001, UC Merced has managed an annual campaign to raise funds for the United Way of Merced County. Through fun events and creative ways to give, the campus campaign strives to increase faculty, staff and student awareness and support for the needs of others in our community. Our campus has demonstrated incredible generosity and support for improving the lives of others in our community.

For the past 60 years, the United Way of Merced County has worked to advance the common good in our local community by partnering with agencies and programs that improve education, help individuals achieve financial stability, and promote healthy living.
