Join our leadership giving society

The Boelter Society, named for the first dean of the school, is the leadership giving society of UCLA Samueli. Its members, who give $1,000 or more annually, or $100,000 or more over the course of their lifetimes, show incredible leadership and vision by generously supporting the school.

Through the generosity of Boelter Society members, the school is able to provide student aid, improve classrooms and labs, and attract top students and faculty.
