Your gift to UCLA Santa Monica Medical Center is a significant way to help transform the lives of others. We appreciate gifts of all sizes; the collective support of our generous friends provides the margin of excellence that distinguishes our research, teaching, and patient care programs. You can donate online or by phone at (310) 206-0500.
UCLA's innovation, dedication, and ability to reimagine medicine are having a profound effect on the healing arts all around the world. These scientific breakthroughs are due in large part to our benefactors as well as our alumni, faculty, and staff.
Gifts can be used immediately to support a variety of current needs. They provide flexibility, allowing UCLA to use them when and where needs are greatest. A pledge is a formal statement of intent to make a gift over a period of time (up to five years).
Cash Wire Transfer
Wire transfers are most commonly used for gifts made from outside the United States. Banks provide minimal information on wire transfers, so to ensure proper disposition of the gift, print and fax this Wire Transfer Instruction Form (PDF) and alert UCLA Health Sciences Development.

Memorial and Tribute Gifts
A memorial/tribute gift is an extraordinary way to say thank you to a physician or member of your healthcare team, honor a significant event, or pay respect to a loved one. The honoree or family receive a card notifying them of your thoughtful contribution. The amount is confidential.
The easiest way to double - or even triple - your contribution to UCLA is to request a matching gift from your employer. Check the database to see if your company has a matching gift program before making your donation.
