As a world-class university and highly ranked medical school, UCLA has achieved a great deal through the generosity of alumni supporters like you. Earlier this year, the University launched The Centennial Campaign for UCLA—an important $4.2 billion undertaking that will continue until 2019, when UCLA reaches the age of 100.
