Anderson Affiliates is the volunteer-led class giving campaign at UCLA Anderson for graduating students and recent alumni (within 5 years).
The goals of Anderson Affiliates are to
Encourage the class to make a collective and meaningful impact on the school through the class gift campaign in their graduating year,
Instill a culture and tradition of giving among students and young alumni, and
Spread awareness about the role of philanthropy in UCLA Anderson’s current and future successes.
Each year, Anderson students and recent alumni come together to help fund the school’s mission and growth • Two out of three students in our MBA programs make a gift. • Gifts can be designated to support the donor’s area of choice.
These gifts are vital to the school, not just monetarily, but because they show how much the school means to its students.
In 2018, the Affiliates raised more than $230,000 to:
Fund the Anderson Venture Accelerator and Marion Anderson Hall
Grant student fellowships to attract the very best students
Support faculty research to attract new professors and protect and build our intellectual capital
Subsidize student-centered events and programs, competitions and conferences
Upgrade to a state-of-the-next learning facility, including classrooms, the courtyard, atriums and North Terrace
Bring distinguished leaders to speak to and inspire the Anderson community and link learning and research to current industry trends.
