Your Role in a Record-Setting Campaign
What a Difference a Donor Makes
You have taken the Centennial Campaign above and beyond its goal of $4.2 billion to support UCLA’s mission of education, research, and service. Your gifts have changed learning and lives, welcoming students to campus, advancing the search for cures, and putting knowledge to practical use in courts, clinics, and communities. And they’re the foundation for a second century of UCLA making the world say, “Wow!”
Your Giving Has Been Grand! We’re Grateful.
Gifts large and small — from first-time donors and longtime friends — mark UCLA’s historic first century and light the way for the next.
Gifts in Action
From medical research to scholarships for middle-income students, from philosophy to faculty chairs, from the arts to improved spaces, donors give to UCLA to promote their passions — and progress.
The Centennial Campaign saw the creation of 1,141 scholarship funds. They result in a return on investment like no other by opening doors to higher education, which creates socioeconomic mobility and the leaders of tomorrow.

During the Centennial Campaign, donors gave to support faculty in myriad ways, including by helping UCLA establish its 500th endowed chair, a university’s most important tool to attract and keep renowned faculty who ensure the best in research and education.
Money raised for research, innovation, and programs helps UCLA come up with new ways to contribute to the public good, like a public university should.
Donors earmark designated discretionary funds for specific campus areas, and UCLA uses them for a variety of purposes, including to support student scholarships and faculty research.
Gifts to renovate, enhance, and create campus facilities ensure that students and faculty learn and work in cutting-edge spaces, with technology that empowers them to succeed.
