What does the money do?
Strong Affiliates help EMBA maintain its high ranking and allow Anderson to pursue value-creating initiatives. Donations help to build the new Anderson Venture Accelerator in Rosenfeld Library, renovate the atrium and outdoor spaces, fund EMBA fellowships, competitions, clubs, conferences and speakers. Your 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.
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 your first payment to be counted as having participated. See our standard pledge options below and choose the level that is right for you.
|Distinguished Dean's Affiliate||$1,000||$1,000||$1,000||$1,000||$1,000||$5,000|
|Dean's Affiliate (with equal company match)**||$500||$500||$500||X||X||$1,500|
**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.
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 invitations to exclusive annual receptions with the Anderson Dean and UCLA Chancellor, special recognition in the Donor Honor Roll, complimentary parking passes, and more.
How can I find out if my company will match my gift to UCLA Anderson?
Many companies match employee gifts up to a certain amount each year. To find out if your company is among those participating in a gift-matching program, click here (also found within our online giving form). You can also ask your human resources department for information about your company's gift-matching policy. Matching gifts can increase the level at which you are recognized in our donor honor roll, but will not reduce your pledge balance.
