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!
