UCLA Bequest Challenge

UCLA Bequest Challenge

100% toward goal!

Thank you to our generous UCLA alumni and friends who chose to remember UCLA in their wills or living trusts in support of the many campus units! We reached our goal of identifying more than 1,200 new bequest intentions to the university.

Each gift represents future scholarships and fellowships, new research breakthroughs, world-class patient care, a place for the arts to flourish, and so much more.

It is not too late to establish a meaningful legacy gift and join a philanthropic effort that will propel and support the university into its second century.
