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.

Together, we hope to 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?

Open

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, professional background, or educational background, our Fellowship will enable a student to strengthen the EMBA program.

Why are students asked to give?

Open

Student participation counts! UCLA 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 alumni network and school. We will be UCLA Anderson alumni forever. Let's keep our brand strong!

How much should I give?

Open

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) will help us endow the EMBA Class of 2019 Fellowship for future students.

Can I make a pledge/pay in installments?

Open

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?

Open

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?

Open

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?

Open

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

“I give because I care. I was fortunate enough to experience UCLA's learning environment twice - First at the college of Letters and Science that provided me with a solid foundation and now at Anderson to learn and network with accomplished individuals and to further refine my skills and attributes for success. Being part of this network of students, alumni, and faculty is a privilege and I care to invest in the future of this institution for other students to reach their potential. I five because this is an important part of helping UCLA achieve it's goals.”
