As a leading nonprofit medical center at the top-ranked public university, UCLA relies on philanthropy to deliver world-class care, discover the latest medical advances, and conduct pioneering research. Generous donations to UCLA make achieving all of this possible.
With your support, we can advance medical care and research, create healthy communities, and offer special programs—from advancing cancer care and research to therapeutic activities for young patients through the Chase Child Life Program — that directly enhance the experience of our patients and their loved ones. Some of these programs are highlighted below.
