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
