Our mission

Whether you are passionate about research on the newest environmental engineering development, care deeply about the arts and how they intertwine with our everyday lives or want to provide scholarships to students that wouldn’t otherwise be able to attend UCLA, you can likely find it right here at UCLA Annual Giving.

It’s because of Bruins like you that UCLA continues to thrive, creating innovators in virtually every sphere. UCLA counts on your annual support to make a difference. And that’s how we all continue to be a part of something bigger.

Support UCLA. Give every year. Give your way.

Mission Statement

The UCLA Annual Giving program builds enduring relationships with alumni, parents, students and friends of the university, and secures annual support for UCLA’s Chancellor and academic leaders in order to maintain and enrich UCLA’s tradition of world-class excellence.
