Staying at the forefront of discovery requires significant resources. That's where UCLA Development comes in. This department, the largest in External Affairs, raises funds to advance the university's mission. It creates enduring relationships with individuals, corporations and foundations to generate support for UCLA's students, faculty and programs.
UCLA raises more private support than any other public university campus in the nation, and its practices and processes are emulated at sister institutions around the country. Development oversees The UCLA Fund, which generates unrestricted support for the university's greatest needs.
The UCLA Foundation, a nonprofit corporation organized under IRC 501(c)(3), receives and disburses private gifts on behalf of the university.
