MBA Challenge for Charity (C4C)
A student-run club that organizes volunteering and fundraising events for our community partners: The Special Olympics of Northern California, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Sacramento and Habitat for Humanity.

We host a number of events—for students as well as faculty, staff, alumni and the greater community—to raise funds for our partners. In addition, we set up volunteering opportunities where our students can go and interact with the children at the Boys & Girls Club and the Special Olympics, and build houses for Habitat for Humanity.

MBA Challenge for Charity (C4C) is a nonprofit organization that started at Stanford University and has grown to nine chapters at top West Coast business schools. The largest organization of its kind in the world, C4C draws on the talents, energy, and efforts of MBA students to infuse business leaders with a lifelong commitment to community involvement and social responsibility.

The chapters compete in fundraising efforts, volunteer events and athletic competitions in pursuit of the coveted “Golden Briefcase,” which is awarded to the school that achieves the highest score in the following categories:

  • Most hours volunteered on a per-student basis throughout the year.
  • Most money raised on a per-student basis throughout the year.
  • Best sports performance at C4C weekend in the spring.

Our Chapter History

UC Davis has been a member of C4C since 2004. Our charity partners are the Special Olympics of Northern California, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Sacramento and, more recently, Habitat for Humanity.

Last year we raised more than $12,000 and volunteered an average of 6.2 hours per student.
