A gift of any amount will amount to something remarkable.
World-Class Academics

Thanks in large part to private philanthropy, UCLA is able to recruit and retain faculty members that have received numerous awards, including Nobel Prizes, MacArthur Fellows, Pulitzer Prizes, and National Medals of Science along with countless other accolades. With over 5,000 courses and 125 majors offered, our students can pursue their academic interests under the guidance of highly accomplished faculty and world industry leaders.

A Vibrant Community

Bruins are more than just brilliant scholars; they are fiercely driven and deeply engaged in the world around them. With over 1,000 clubs and organizations—many of which receive support from Bruin gifts—to engage student interests, a Volunteer Center to extend community leadership beyond campus, and recreation centers that foster healthy living, UCLA is able to nurture tomorrow’s leaders by providing uniquely diverse experiences and opportunities.

Bruins for Life

UCLA boasts impressive academic rankings for countless departments. From the nation’s most decorated athletic program to a top 10 world reputation ranking, UCLA is a leading institution in every arena. Private philanthropy not only enables our programs to build for the future, but also impacts many national rankings which use alumni participation in their methodology. An investment in UCLA pays dividends to all Bruins—today and tomorrow.

Strength in numbers

In the last year alone, fellow Bruins of all types—alumni, students, parents, faculty and friends—made over 52,000 gifts and donated more than $26.5 million to the university. When the UCLA community comes together, big things happen. Join us!
