Affiliate Giving

Anderson Affiliates


For over 30 years, affiliates campaigns have played a fundamental role at UCLA Anderson. The UCLA Anderson Affiliates Campaign is designed to encourage graduating Anderson students to initiate and continue their support of their alma mater. Through the efforts of The Affiliates Committee volunteers, the funds raised from the campaign can support initiatives and priorities such as:

•Student fellowships •Faculty support •Clubs and associations •Center innovations •Expanded alumni programs

The goals of Anderson Affiliates are to:
  1. Encourage their classmates to make a gift to a fund of their choice before graduation,
  2. Instill a culture and tradition of giving back to Anderson among students and young alumni, and
  3. 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 the donor’s area of choice.


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.

In 2019, the Affiliates raised more than $270,000 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.
