About this organization






Actively promoting philanthropy and managing donated resources for the advancement of UCLA.


Through The UCLA Foundation, generous donors participate with building, sustaining and advancing the university. While there was a time when state funds covered almost every dollar UCLA needed to operate, today only six percent of the university’s total budget is paid for through the state’s general fund. Private philanthropy provides the resources UCLA requires to continue growing its stature as a global leader in the creation, sharing and application of knowledge. Specifically, The Foundation: - Receives contributions made by alumni, friends, private foundations and corporations on behalf of UCLA’s many schools, units and departments - Disburses the contributions according to the expressed wishes of the donor - Oversees the donated resources and investment assets, which are managed by the nonprofit UCLA Investment Company - Actively promotes philanthropy across the campus
