Anderson Affiliates
For over 30 years, affiliates campaigns have played a fundamental role at UCLA Anderson. The UCLA Anderson Affiliates Campaign is a student-led initiative celebrating the effort and generosity of graduating Anderson students. Through the efforts of Affiliates Committee volunteers, the funds raised will support initiatives and priorities such as:

•Student support •Clubs and associations •Center innovations

The goals of Anderson Affiliates are to:

  1. Pay it forward by turning affinity for Anderson into philanthropy.
  2. Instill a culture and tradition of giving back to Anderson.
  3. Spread awareness about the role of philanthropy in 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 the donor’s area of choice.

Affiliates Committee:

  • Class gift committee is led by student leaders.
  • Volunteer responsibilities include philanthropic education, peer-to-peer engagement and building gratitude.
  • Experience serving on a nonprofit board and leave a lasting legacy at Anderson.
  • Committee is supported by development staff members.


Funds that come in through these campaigns are invested in UCLA Anderson to drive our school’s strength and reputation as a leader in management education. Participation in the class gift is a testament to the confidence and strength of our school.
