UCLA began as a Teacher’s College in 1882, and we have been shaping and molding the knowledge sector in this country ever since. We develop future generations of scholars, teachers, information professionals, and institutional leaders. Our work is guided by the principles of individual responsibility and social justice, an ethic of caring, and commitment to the communities we serve.


Prepares students to be leaders in education research, policy and practice.


Seeks to define, study and evaluate interactions among people, information and information technology in a way that promotes equity, diversity, accountability and intellectual openness.


Groundbreaking research is more than a concept at Ed & IS — it’s a plan of action. Our nationally renowned research centers and institutes are doing fundamental work on what matters most in education and information studies in the 21st century: the discovery and application of usable knowledge at the crossroads of policy and practice.

Electronic Funds Transfer: Monthly payments via electronic funds transfer may be arranged through a donor’s financial institution and the UCLA Foundation.

Wire Transfer: Wire transfers are most commonly used for gifts made from outside the United States. Financial institutions provide minimal information on wire transfers, so to ensure proper disposition of the gifts, donors should alert the University that a wire transfer has been made by notifying the UCLA Ed&IS External Relations Office at (310) 206-0375.

Securities: Financial institutions provide minimal information on securities transfers, so to ensure proper disposition of the gifts, donors should alert the UCLA Ed&IS External Relations Office that a securities transfer has been made. Gifts of securities are recorded based on the mean market value of the stock, bond, or mutual fund on the date of gift, which is determined by the date the donor relinquishes control of the asset. Please contact the securities coordinator for the UCLA Foundation at (310) 794-3434 for more information and for detailed transfer instructions.

Additional Gift Options

Employer Matching Gifts: Employer matching gifts can double or triple your gift…and you can receive full credit for the total amount of the donation for the purposes of recognition and benefits. Hundreds of companies currently match the gifts of their employees or employees’ spouses to UCLA. Participating employers are specially recognized on the School’s Honor Roll. To find out if your or your spouse’s employer matches gifts, you may check our database before making your donation. You can request and fill in a matching gift form from your company (often through the human resources office) and mail in or fax the form to the UCLA Ed&IS External Relations office.

Memorial and Honorary Gifts: Honorary gifts commemorate a significant event or someone who is still living. Alumni frequently make gifts to honor a faculty member at Ed&IS. A memorial gift can help perpetuate the values and ideals that guided someone’s life. Families of those so honored will be notified of your gift, but the amount of the gift is not disclosed. If you are interested in making a memorial or honorary gift, please make sure to provide the appropriate information when you make or submit your gift.

Gifts of Real Estate and Materials: Real property, either in its entirety or in part, can be deeded to The UCLA Foundation to benefit the University. For residential properties, it is possible to arrange a sizable tax deduction by deeding a home to UCLA, while continuing to occupy the property for life. The UCLA Ed&IS gratefully accepts donations of materials that support its academic, teaching and research mission. The University receives a wide variety of such gifts, including rare books and manuscripts, works of art, equipment and other items of value. If you are interested in making a gift of real estate or materials, please contact the UCLA Ed&IS External Relations Office at (310) 206-0375.
