Questions

What does the money do?
Strong Affiliates help FEMBA maintain its high ranking and allow Anderson to pursue value-creating initiatives. Donations help to builds the new Anderson Accelerator in the Rosenfeld Library. Renovate the atrium and outdoor spaces. Fund FEMBA fellowships, competitions, clubs, conferences and speakers. Gifts help make Anderson better and stay on the cutting edge of management education. 

Why are students asked to give?
Student participation counts! Anderson publicly reports the percent of graduating students and alumni who give to the school each fiscal year, and this rate is a measurement of the strength of our network.

How much should I give?
Give an amount that’s meaningful to you. Together, many small gifts add up. Participation is most important. See below for suggested leadership levels.

Can I make a pledge?
Yes! You can make a pledge over multiple years, or you may pay your gift in installments. You must make a payment to be counted as having participated. See our standard pledge options below and choose the level that is right for you.

What donor benefits can I receive for a leadership gift?
Students and recent alumni who give $1,000 or more annually are recognized as Dean’s Affiliates and are honorary members of the UCLA Anderson Dean’s Society. Benefits include invitation to exclusive annual receptions with the Anderson Dean and UCLA Chancellor, special recognition in the Donor Honor Roll, complimentary parking passes and more

**Individuals working for a matching gift company and interested in the Dean's Affiliate membership can make a pledge of $1,500 over three years and pay $500 annually or make a one-time $500 gift. Once UCLA receives your company's (one time or annual $500 match) you will receive Dean's Affiliate courtesies. All gifts received prior to July 1 of your graduation year will be counted towards your class participation.

How can I find out if my company will match my gift to UCLA Anderson?
Many companies match employee gifts up to a certain limit per year. To find out if your company is among those participating in a gift-matching program, consult the online database of matching companies (also found within our online giving application). You can also ask your human resources department for information about your company's gift-matching policy.

Is it tax deductible, and will my company match it?

Yes, your gift is tax deductible (UCLA Foundation Tax ID 95-2250801), and you can find out if your company will match at matchinggifts.com/ucla. Matching gifts can increase the level at which you are recognized in our donor honor roll, but cannot reduce your pledge balance.
