Parent & Family Giving offers a way to show pride in your Bruin and enhance the overall student experience by supporting any area across campus. Gifts can be designated for the Parents Fund or a specific academic department, campus resource, student club and more.

By giving to UCLA, you help bridge a gap between tuition and state support - which only covers a portion of the cost to fully educate a student.

Why We Give
Why We Give

“Along with being some of the most formative and rewarding years of their lives, our two Bruins' experiences at UCLA also opened up opportunities for us to engage more deeply as parents. Through our involvement, we learned that tuition and state funding do not cover the full cost of educating our students. So individual giving plays a significant part in providing UCLA with the excellent resources and exceptional programs that influenced our children to attend the nation's #1 public university.

Through our philanthropic investment, we have come to appreciate the Chancellor's Society which has provided us with a community of like-minded supporters, insider knowledge regarding the campus, and a solidified relationship with UCLA.”
