UCLA Chancellor’s Parent Cabinet

Parent donors who demonstrate their philanthropic leadership through a $10,000 annual gift are recognized as UCLA Chancellor’s Parent Cabinet donors, an esteemed group of parent donors within the UCLA Chancellor’s Cabinet.

As a Chancellor’s Cabinet donor, you will receive unique opportunities to connect more deeply with fellow UCLA parents, other UCLA alumni, and with the university itself. Parent Cabinet donors are encouraged to wear the Bruin parent pin to the many Chancellor’s Society events as a symbol of their generosity.

If you would like to know more about the Parent Cabinet, please feel free to reach out at (310) 206-2500 or parentphilanthropy@support.ucla.edu.

First-year UCLA Parents

Have you heard about Sandy Sigal's challenge to first-year parents? In honor of his daughter's upcoming graduation from UCLA, Sandy has established a challenge grant of $50,000 to inspire and encourage first-year parents' generous support of the university. With this challenge, Sandy hopes to promote involvement from first-year families and ensure that the legacy of parent philanthropy at UCLA continues to grow with every new class. Every first-year parent gift received through June 30, 2018, will be matched as they are received. This means that your gift will have double the impact for UCLA.
