Cash, Check or Credit Card

Gifts of cash, check or credit card are often the most convenient way of giving.

- To make a gift by credit card over the phone (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover accepted), please call the Wooden Athletic Fund office at 310-206-3302.

- To make a gift by check or credit card, please download and print the Wooden Athletic Fund Membership Application

Checks should be made payable to "UCLA Foundation" and mailed to:

The Wooden Athletic Fund
UCLA Athletics Department
P.O. Box 24044
Los Angeles, CA 90024


Pledges enable you to plan personal giving programs that are both convenient and tax-wise. Pledges may also enable you to consider more significant gifts than would have been otherwise possible. You may choose to establish an automatic payment plan to complete your pledge or request that courtesy reminders be sent out instead. Please download the Wooden Athletic Fund membership application for more information on pledge options.


Gifts of securities may be made as an outright gift or as payment on a pledge. Gifts of appreciated securities can be attractive to you because no capital gain is recognized on the transfer. Please contact the Securities Coordinator at (310) 794-3434 for detailed transfer instructions.

Estate Plan Gifts

In addition to outright gifts of cash and property, there are other types of giving opportunities available, such as charitable remainder trusts, charitable gift annuities, deferred gift annuities, charitable lead trusts, pooled income funds, life insurance, and bequests which may offer attractive tax advantages.

Gift Matching

If your employer matches gifts to Athletics, we encourage you to enclose a matching gift form with this membership application. Please understand that your employer may not match your gift, or may only match the tax-deductible portion of your gift, and that you the donor are responsible for the unmatched amount. Please contact our office for more information.

If you are applying for a matching gift, please fill in only your portion of the total gift in the Gift Box. However, please be sure to check off the appropriate level of the Wooden Athletic Fund which corresponds to the total gift, including your portion & your employer's expected match. Thank you.

For more information, please contact the UCLA Athletics Development Office at (310) 206-3302.

Payment Plan Agreement

I hereby authorize The UCLA Foundation (Company ID#95-2250801) to initiate debit entries based on my installment selection for my remaining payments and (credit) adjustments for any debit entries in error to my designated checking or credit card account. This authority is to remain in effect until the balance has been fulfilled or until the Bank receives written notification from me of its termination in such time and in such manner to afford the Bank reasonable opportunity to act.
