Be Loyal. Be B.O.L.D.!
The Bruin Order of Loyal Donors (B.O.L.D.) is UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science’s loyalty society. This loyalty society exists to honor donors who support the school in the two, or more, most recent fiscal years (July to June).
B.O.L.D. members provide valuable, consistent contributions that support UCLA Samueli year after year, month after month. Dependable gifts from our B.O.L.D. members secure a strong foundation for which students, faculty, and research can thrive as the greatest problem solvers to tackle the greatest challenges of the 21st century.
HOW TO BECOME B.O.L.D.
Gifts of any amount grant eligibility for a B.O.L.D. membership. The easiest way to become or stay B.O.L.D. is to sign up for monthly, quarterly or annual recurring payments. Once you hit your 2nd consecutive year of giving, you are automatically a member.
