Grants and gifts are listed by the fiscal year in which the funds were committed (i.e. start date of project). For multi-year commitments, the total amount is reported in the fiscal year in which the funds were initially committed. Endowments are reported in the fiscal year of the initial gift or grant; annual payouts commence after 12 months and are determined by the Regents of the University of California or the UC Davis Foundation Board of Trustees (approximate payout of 4.5% annually).  Funds awarded are rounded to the nearest hundred.
