Ways To Give.
Gifts 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

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.
