What does the money do?
Strong Affiliates help FEMBA maintain its high ranking and allow Anderson to pursue value-creating initiatives. Donations help build the new Anderson Venture Accelerator in Rosenfeld Library, renovate the atrium and outdoor spaces, fund FEMBA 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. We will be Anderson alumni forever. Lets keep our brand strong!
Can I make a pledge?
Yes! You can make a pledge over multiple years, or you may pay your gift in installments (monthly, quarterly, etc.). You must make your first payment or a portion of your first payment to be counted as having participated. See our standard pledge options below and choose the level that is right for you. Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
|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 $1,500 or annual $500) match, you will be recognized as a Dean's Affiliate member of the Dean's Society. All gifts received prior to July 1 of your graduation year will be counted towards your class participation.
What is the benefit of being a Dean's Affiliate or Distinguished Dean's Affiliate?
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, normally $2,500. Dean's Affiliates get access to special opportunities to network with other leadership donors and connect with UCLA Anderson. They are also recognized the UCLA Chancellor's Society.
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 per 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.
