ways to give

Gits are vital to the mission of UCLA Engineering, and the school offers rewarding opportunities to match the interests of every donor. Gifts can be made in many ways.


When you make a cash contribution, your gift will make an immediate impact. The easiest, most direct way to make a gift is online. You can also mail a check, cashier's check, or money order, made payable to the UCLA Foundation, to:

Office of External Affairs

UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science
7256 Boelter Hall, Box 951600
Los Angeles, CA 90095-1600


If you'd like to donate to UCLA Engineering in installments or defer the bulk of your gift until a future date, a pledge is the answer. You can make a pledge online. If you already have a pledge established, you can make a pledge payment online, as well.

Bequests/Planned Gifts

In a will or living trust, donors may specify that they would like their estate to benefit UCLA Engineering, and also may specify that they would like their gifts managed by The UCLA Foundation. For information on how to include UCLA Engineering in your estate plans, please contact UCLA Engineering’s Office of External Affairs by calling 310.206.0678 or sending an email to

Real Estate

You can deed real property or an estate to The UCLA Foundation, in whole or in part, to benefit UCLA Engineering. Those who deed a home or estate can receive sizable tax deductions while still occupying the home for life. For more details, please contact the Office of Gift Planning by visiting or by calling 800.737-8252.


Gifts of stock can provide significant tax benefits to you, while proving an invaluable investment in UCLA Engineering students and faculty. In many cases, the tax benefits associated with direct giving will allow you to increase the size of your gift.

Charitable Gift Annuities

Donors may transfer stock, real estate or money in trust and receive income for themselves, or for others, for life. Donors may receive immediate tax benefits, and UCLA ultimately receives the trust property. For more information, please contact the Office of Gift Planning by visiting or calling 800.737-8252.
