Spark Campaign

Spark Campaign Exceeds Its Goal
March was a banner month for alumni giving. With the goal of raising a quarter million dollars for Alumni Scholarships, the UCLA crowdfunder, known as Spark, powered by 17 UCLA Alumni groups, brought in more than $447,700. Thank you to the dedicated volunteers and the 838 generous donors, of gifts both large and small, who rallied to make education at UCLA a priority. Congratulations!

Musical Bruins

Earth Day Event

Earth Day Beach Restoration Project - April 16
Join fellow UCLA alumni and friends at Half Moon Bay State Beach for a morning beach restoration project in celebration of Earth Day. They will remove non-native and invasive plants, enhance landscaping around the parking lot and campsite, and construct animal-proof trash enclosures.

Lynn Dines

Volunteer Spotlight: Lynn Dines '78 - A Journey of Giving Back
Lynn Dines lives life with no regrets. Well traveled and adventurous, she's a believer in giving back and helping others at every turn. Why else would she join the Peace Corps at the age of 51? She's also served UCLA in many capacities: Alumni Association board, Gold Shield Alumnae president and one of the creators of Interview With a Bruin.


Celebrating 75 Years of Alumni Travel
