Make a Match

The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry is dedicating resources to inspire others to give by extending its Matching Gift Program aimed at significantly changing the future of UCLA Chemistry & Biochemistry through endowed support during The Centennial Campaign for UCLA.

Through June 30, 2019, qualifying gifts of $100,000 to $1 million to the UCLA Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry endowments will be matched at 100%. For example, a $500,000 gift will become $1,000,000!

  • Gifts eligible for matching funds must support new or existing endowments.
     
  • Gifts may be designated to support scholarships, student awards, graduate student fellowships, postdoctoral fellowships, faculty research, chairs, physical space, and many other endowment options within the UCLA Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry (pending appropriate approval).
     
  • Only cash gifts and pledges will be matched. (Corporate matching gifts and deferred planned gifts are not eligible for the match.) Pledges are payable over a maximum of five years. This match will be applied when the full gift amount designated has been received by the university.
     
  • There are limited funds, which are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
     
  • Contact Elizabeth Trejo 310.206.8023, etrejo@support.ucla.edu to discuss specific details about this exciting opportunity to double the impact of your gift to UCLA’s Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry.
