Iyer Family

Margarita Iyer is one of the first members of our Parent Philanthropy Ambassadors program, a group of parents who demonstrate philanthropic leadership. The program also connects families to information on accessing campus resources. The Iyer family considered many universities before their daughter selected UCR. Their daughter recently completed her second year as a business major with a concentration in information systems. Their choice was informed by a family friend who highlighted the supportive environment and many opportunities that UCR offers.

Your Gift Supports

When you give to UCR you support academic excellence, research, and your student’s journey at UCR.

“As parents, we are very proud of the accomplishments of our UCR student, having graduated from this fine and wonderful research university. UCR is a place for exploration, acceptance, and guidance; this is the same passion my wife and I strive to share with our children. If this is your wish for your child, you’ve come to the right place.”
 - MICHAEL AND DEBBIE ELKINS
