Types of Gifts

The UCLA Library Associates Giving Society

Support provides funds to meet our greatest needs. You can significantly impact the quality of our innovative resources and services by making a gift today.

Honor with Books

Pay tribute by placing a bookplate in a special person’s honor in a newly purchased book in the subject area of your choice. Give a great graduation, retirement, or holiday gift to a loved one, friend, special teacher or colleague.

Collection Endowments

Provide critically needed funds for library materials in a subject area of interest by starting a collection endowment named for you or someone you wish to honor. Collection endowments begin at $50,000 and can be made with a single gift or pledged over several years. Custom-designed bookplates are affixed to each item funded by the endowment.

Name a Space

Naming opportunities in each library location recognize special gifts. Create your legacy or honor a special person with opportunities beginning at $25,000.

Endow a Librarian

Endowed positions enable us to attract and retain skilled librarians, who are critical to the research, teaching, and learning at the heart of UCLA’s mission. Named endowed positions start at $1 million.

Make a Bequest

Leave a lasting legacy by including the UCLA Library in your will or living trust. Alumni, friends, faculty and staff who benefit the university through planned giving are welcomed into the prestigious UCLA Legacy Society. Planned gifts include gifts through wills, living trusts, charitable trusts, charitable gift annuities, retirement plans or other estate-planning arrangements.
