Local News in Brief : Donations to UCLA Set Record for UC

UCLA received more than $102 million in private gifts during the 1987-88 fiscal year to set a record for the UC system, Chancellor Charles E. Young announced.

The total raised in the 12 months ending June 30 was $102.7 million, Young said, making the Westwood campus the first to receive more than $100 million in private funding during a fiscal year.

The gifts ensure that UCLA “will have the necessary resources to maintain and strengthen its position as one of the nation’s premier research universities,” Young said.

Gift totals for the preceding four fiscal years were $75 million in 1983-84, $77.3 million in 1984-85, $79.8 million in 1985-86 and $91.1 million in 1986-87.
