Whether you graduated five years or several decades ago, your reunion year is a time to reflect on your dental school expereince and the career you began at UCLA. It's a time to celebrate with classmates and reconnect with favorite faculty members, and the perfect opportunity to begin, renew or increase your giving to the dental school.
You are a part of our past. Become a part of our future.Since its founding in 1964, the UCLA School of Dentistry has evolved into one of the leading dental schools in the world. We are proud of our ability to attract academically gifted and culturally diverse faculty, students and staff, our outstanding educational and research programs, and our commitment to public service. In this era of declining state and federal funding for public education, we increasingly rely upon philanthropic support from our alumni to fulfill our mission and to uphold the strong reputation of the school. Your support helps current and future dental students realize their potential and to become the leading clinicians, educators and researchers of tomorrow.
A reunion presents a unique opportunity for alumni to make an especially meaningful gift through a multi-year pledge or planned giving arrangement, to contribute to a special class project, or to become a Sponsor or Benefactor of the Apollonian Society. Whatever your interest, the UCLA School of Dentistry has gift opportunities for everyone at every level.
All new gifts and pledges made to the dental school during your reunion year (July 1, 2010-June 30, 2011) count toward honored class totals in two categories: most funds raised and highest class participation rate.
You can help to increase your class's participation rates and gift totals in one or more of the following ways:
- Make an online gift to the Apollonian Society
- Explore our fundraising priorities and contribute to an area of special interest to you
- Volunteer to become a Class Captain for your reunion
To get involved, contact the Dentistry Development Office at (310) 206-0215 or the Office of Alumni Affairs at (310) 206-1022. Congratulations on your reunion and thank you for your support. We hope to see you in Anaheim on Saturday, May 14, 2011 for our annual Alumni Day event and reunion celebration!
