Gifts to UCLA, the nation’s number one public university in one of the most creative, diverse cities in the world, are incredibly powerful. The breadth of expertise, the scope of resources, the passion of our people, and the public nature of our mission set us apart.

From UCLA to the World

Philanthropic contributions to research universities such as UCLA become contributions to society at large. They advance research, teaching, and service to improve lives. They inspire innovation and big thinking and help address some of the world’s most challenging issues.

Partners for Progress

UCLA Development spans the campus, with fundraisers, supported by central development, dedicated to departments and programs in every school and unit. Their goal is to help donors fulfill their philanthropic passions by connecting them with faculty, students, and programs in the areas they want to support.

Whether you’re interested in advancing the arts, supporting medical research or patient care, helping educate the next public policy expert — virtually any cause, cure, career you want to cultivate — UCLA is your partner. And the collaboration that goes on among different experts and areas helps propel discoveries and dreams.

Join us in putting knowledge to work to do the public good.

UCLA Development is committed to building relationships with our donors based on integrity, accountability, and respect.

I hope this gift will give others a chance to remember how crucial the humanities are, and, in their own way, to recommit.

Society has a responsibility to care for the most vulnerable. Our partnership with UCLA empowers faculty and students with the knowledge to meet that need.
