All gifts to the UCLA Fielding School of Public Health, no matter their size, help the Fielding School maintain and strengthen its reputation for excellence in education and research in health policy, global and immigrant health, community health, and to support its service to the community.
Decline in State Funding: The continued decline in state funding means the Fielding School must increasingly rely on unrestricted gifts from alumni and friends. Today, it is estimated that UCLA receives only 16 percent of its operating budget from the state of California. Three decades ago, this figure was more than 60 percent.
Tax Benefits: Gifts to the Fielding School not only benefit the school, its students and faculty; they benefit the donor as well. You will receive an income tax deduction for your gift. Consult your tax advisor regarding current IRS regulations to ensure you are receiving the full advantages of your donation.
Gifts to the Fielding School not only benefit the School, they benefit the donor as well.
