Your reunion year is the perfect opportunity to begin, renew or increase your giving to the law school. Your participation matters, so we encourage all alumni to support the Reunion Challenge effort.
With state funding to the law school decreasing rapidly, we now depend more and more on private philanthropy from our alumni to maintain the law school’s excellence. Giving back now will help current and future law students realize their dreams, just as your exceptional, yet affordable, legal education helped you realize yours. Not only will you be helping fund UCLA Law’s current and long term needs, you’ll increase your class’s giving and participation statistics in the challenge.
The 2014 Reunion Challenge is underway. The reunion giving period for those celebrating their reunions in May 2014 runs from July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014.
If you’re curious to see the results of the 2013 Reunion Challenge effort, please take a look at last year's reunion giving below.

For many alumni, their reunion celebration is an opportunity to make a gift above and beyond what they might typically make. Gifts at all levels are welcome and assist us in increasing our participation rates, an important factor used in determining our national rankings.
Some choose to make five-year pledges in honor of the reunion. These pledges allow the law school to count on your sustained support. Making a gift at the Dean’s Circle level is another way for you to make an impact at the law school. Annual gifts of $2,500, $5,000, $10,000 or $25,000 help the law school build its philanthropic base and fill its most pressing needs -- and offer you great benefits at the same time. Or if a planned gift is more feasible than an outright cash gift, please consider including UCLA Law in your estate by making a planned gift in honor of your reunion.
