Ziman Campaign

The UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate launched its capital campaign on February 11, 2015, at the home of Jordan and Christine Kaplan with the overwhelming support of our esteemed Boards, UCLA university leadership, Bruin alums, and a dynamic group of industry leaders and friends.

In seventeen short years, the Ziman Center has built unparalleled student and alumni programs, produced cutting-edge real estate research and analyses, hosted timely industry activities, and convened meaningful public policy initiatives. To celebrate our success and ensure the Center's permanent and enduring impact on the future, the Richard S. Ziman Center for Real Estate at UCLA embarked on a $20 million dollar endowment campaign to permanently fund its initiatives and expand into new research and social impact areas.


We have much to be proud of at the UCLA Ziman Center, and the support of committed and talented colleagues make it all possible. With your continued influence, together we will create a lasting legacy of excellence and innovation in real estate research, education, policy, professional practice, and community outreach for generations to come.
