About The UCLA Foundation

The UCLA Foundation is grateful for the generous support of tens of thousands of donors who play a vital role in maintaining UCLA's excellence as a public research university. Their gifts provide extraordinary faculty, high-achieving students and innovative researchers with the transformative resources they need to impact the university and the world.

The UCLA Foundation provides donors with resources to help fulfill their philanthropic visions. Governed by a Board of Directors led by donor-volunteers, The Foundation provides fiduciary oversight of the investment of assets managed to benefit the university. The Foundation receives contributions from UCLA's donor community of alumni, friends, private foundations and corporations, faculty, staff and students. It invests and manages resources to maximize long-term returns and support current and future generations of scholars and leaders. The Foundation determines the annual payout and disburses these funds to beneficiaries.

The UCLA Foundation is proud to play a role in advancing the campus mission of teaching, research and service. UCLA's donors are more than philanthropists; they are advocates for excellence. Their confidence in UCLA fuels the optimism of our campus today and the leadership of Bruins tomorrow.
