Since 1968, Bruins have helped to provide pathways out of poverty for their fellow Angelenos by contributing millions of dollars to United Way. Last year alone, UCLA staff and faculty contributed more than $220,000 to the campaign.

From May 1 through May 31, faculty and staff will once again have the opportunity to participate in UCLA’s annual campaign to benefit United Way of Greater Los Angeles. Please help support this year’s campaign and donate a one-time gift or initiate a payroll deduction. Remember — each one of us can make a difference.
