EMBA Affiliates

2019 Class Gift Campaign


Take part in the 29-year UCLA Anderson tradition of class campaigns and help us leave our legacy!

As the EMBA Class of 2019, we aim to raise $250,000* through the Anderson Affiliates Class Gift Campaign to support a fellowship designated to future EMBA students, particularly focused on helping someone from an underrepresented background that demonstrates financial need that may prevent them from accepting their admissions offer.

For a pledge of $1,800 (paid over 5 years, $360/year or only $30/month), together we can reach 100% participation in the class gift to make a collective and meaningful impact on the future of the EMBA program and instill a culture and tradition of paying it forward. More details about fellowship award amount and distribution timeline, and selection criteria TBD. Stay tuned.

*$250,000 payable over 5 years and including employer matching gifts.

What will the fellowship do?

Our EMBA Class of 2019 Fellowship will help future generations of EMBA students. We seek to award our EMBA Fellowship to applicants and students from underrepresented communities that will add a different perspective to future EMBA classes.

Selection criteria is TBD, but whether the program needs more diversity in gender, ethnicity, or professional or educational background, our Fellowship will enable a student to strengthen the EMBA program. 

How much should I give?


Give an amount that's meaningful to you. Together, gifts of different sizes add up. Your participation is most important. ~$1,800 per student (payable over 5 years/$360 per year or $30/month) will help us endow the EMBA Class of 2019 Fellowship for future students.


Can I make a pledge/pay in installments?


Yes! We encourage gifts to the campaign to be payable over 5 years in installments (monthly, quarterly, annually). Our campaign recognizes the full amount of your pledge.

What donor benefits can I receive for a leadership gift?


Students and recent alumni (classes of 2014-2018) who give $1,000+ annually are recognized as Dean's Affiliates and are members of the UCLA Anderson Dean's Society (normally $2,500+). 

Dean's Affiliates get access to special events and opportunities to network with other leadership donors, the school's board members and campus administration. Members of our Dean's Society are members of the UCLA Chancellor's Society and get access to UCLA-wide events as well. 


How can I find out if my company will match my gift to UCLA Anderson?


Visit matchinggifts.com/ucla to see if your or your spouse's employer participates in a matching gift program. Submitting requests for matching gifts are submitted through corporate intranet sites or your HR department.

Matching gifts count toward our campaign and will increase the level at which you are recognized in our donor honor roll and class campaign, but cannot reduce your pledge balance (pay your installments).


Is my gift tax-deductible?


Yes, your gift is fully tax-deductible. The UCLA Foundation tax ID is 95-2250801.


"I give as a sign of partnership and commitment to tomorrow's leaders from the EMBA program. I pay it forward to our newly established EMBA Class of 2019 Fellowship to make a difference in the lives of future students and to strengthen our program and alumni network."
