How you can help

UCLA Extension is a fully self-supporting division of UCLA, receiving no state or campus funding. Without state funding, we depend on the support of our donors to provide innovative program development and student support. 

Your tax-deductible donation provides vital financial support and directly increases students’ learning opportunities by providing assistance ranging from institutional technology upgrades to scholarships. 

In addition to this type of broad support, your donations can also be targeted to benefit a certain program or department.

Your gift can: 

  • Increase access by providing scholarships to students in need; community educational outreach to underserved populations 
  • Inspire transformation by developing tools and programs for those who want to launch, re-launch or accelerate their careers
  • Imagine the future of learning by developing bold and cross-disciplinary curriculum engages a new generation of learners and to meet the evolving needs of our economy and community
