Funding Excellence

UCLA Development is a best-in-class fundraising program that partners with academic leaders and philanthropists to support UCLA’s highest priorities.

Donors – and Passions – of All Types

Contributions from individuals, families, corporations, and foundations advance the university’s mission of teaching, research, and service in pursuit of the greater good. We aim to match donors’ interests and philanthropic goals with UCLA’s priorities and expertise. By engaging a diverse pool of leaders, volunteers, students, faculty, alumni, staff, and friends in the philanthropic process, we encourage a breadth of giving at all levels.

True to Our Mission

Donors to UCLA can expect to be met with integrity, expertise, professionalism, teamwork, rigor, service, judgment, respect, and discretion. And they can expect to make a powerful difference in the world by supporting UCLA
