2015 TTCF Award Winners
As part of the UCLA Children's Discovery and Innovation Institute, Today's and Tomorrow's Children Fund (TTCF) was born out of the belief that, by pooling their donations, a group of committed individuals can award a major gift every year to make an important difference in the work of talented UCLA Pediatrics faculty members whose cutting edge research benefits the boys and girls at UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital.
Our approach is simple: members each commit $5,000 or more annually, then have the opportunity to vote from a ballot of projects prescreened by the Physician-in-Chief of UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital; each member has an equal vote. Everyone will be invited to the annual faculty presentation day, where the three Pediatrics faculty members who received the most votes will present their research. Members will then vote again to determine how to award that year's group gift. All gift recipients submit a report to TTCF members that summarizes the impact of the gift in their various areas of research or clinical care so that members can see their dollars in action.
Since its inception in 2006, TTCF has raised more than $1.75 million to fund 16 innovative research projects, which have a profound effect on children at UCLA Mattel Children's Hospital and beyond.
