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 invest in the latest medical equipment, expand our locations, and offer special programs—from Urban Zen Integrative Therapy to visits from our People-Animal Connection canine therapy teams— that directly enhance the experience of our patients and their loved ones. Some of these programs are highlighted below.
If UCLA Health has made an impact in your life, however large or small, please consider a gift during #GivingTuesday.
