Make a Tribute Gift

A tribute gift to UCLA Health Sciences can be a thoughtful way to show your appreciation to a UCLA doctor or caregiver, celebrate a milestone, or share your sympathies—all while supporting a meaningful cause.

Tribute gifts can be made online, over the phone, or by mail. When making your donation, please include the name of the person(s) being honored and, if desired, the mailing address of the honoree or family member so that we may notify them of your thoughtful gesture.

Set up a Memorial Tribute

In lieu of flowers, families may request that memorial gifts be directed to support patient care, medical education, or research initiatives at UCLA. Please contact the Health Sciences Development office to establish a memorial tribute to your loved one.

Our goal is to make this process as easy as possible. We are happy to provide customized language for the remembrance and/or obituary, notify you regularly of gifts received, and ensure that all donors are thanked for their generosity.


Special Occasion Giving

A gift to UCLA Health Sciences in lieu of favors for your wedding guests is a perfect way to incorporate the cause closest to your heart in your special day. We will work with you to create personalized announcement cards to inform your guests that a donation has been made in their honor.

Should you wish to ask guests to make a donation to UCLA in lieu of bringing wedding presents, we will partner with you to ensure a seamless experience—for both you and your guests! Our team will create a customized giving website through which friends and family may contribute and learn more about the great cause you have chosen to support in this meaningful way.
