Message from the Chair

UCLA’s impact on my life has been immeasurable. I’m an alumnus, donor, volunteer and employer of graduates. Like so many others, I feel exceedingly fortunate to have had access to such an incredible institution. The most meaningful way for me to show my gratitude is to make it possible for others to benefit from UCLA. Participation in The UCLA Foundation is one of the most rewarding ways to do that.

The UCLA Foundation is known for prudent management of the philanthropy that UCLA receives. That is a critical function, but The Foundation’s involvement with the University is far broader. We help attract top faculty and keep them here. We enable the most promising students to study here. We enhance ties with our graduates around the world. And we support UCLA’s work with the community. We do all of this by supplying unrestricted funding for needs that are otherwise unmet.

The UCLA Foundation exists to nurture UCLA’s excellence and extend it as far as possible. Doing so not only changes individual lives but also makes our world better for us all.

This report shows how generous donors, like you, are passionately advancing the University through their support. On behalf of The Foundation, we are deeply grateful for your contribution. In true Bruin spirit, let’s continue to do all we can.
