10 years. $3 billion. 225,000 donors.

Campaign UCLA - the most successful fund-raising campaign in the history of higher education - has had an impact far beyond the bounds of the Westwood campus. The Campaign has supported:

* undergraduate and graduate students - the "people product" of a research university, powering economic growth and social mobility * medical research and patient-care programs - advances that resonate through American medicine and around the world

* faculty research and endowed professorships - a key ingredient in academic excellence

And so much more . . .

In 10 years, Campaign UCLA raised $3.053 billion in gifts and pledges.


J. Fraser Stoddart holds the Fred Kavli Chair in NanoSystems Sciences - one of 124 new professorships endowed by the Campaign.


Campaign gifts helped to build the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. Opening in 2007, the hospital will offer the most advanced patient care in the nation.

Campaign UCLA gifts provided funding for more than 30,000 scholarship and fellowship awards to undergraduate and graduate students.


Among the programs and centers endowed by Campaign UCLA is the Ronald W. Burkle Center for International Relations.

Support for Campaign UCLA was broad-based, with more than 225,000 donors large and small.
