Another Transformative Investment from David Geffen

Financial Stability

Chancellor Block sent the following message to the UCLA campus community.

I am thrilled to announce a $46 million gift from David Geffen, a great friend and generous supporter of UCLA, to expand his groundbreaking David Geffen Medical Scholarship Fund at the school that bears his name. This significant reinvestment brings his total giving to the fund to $146 million and will enable 120 more medical students to benefit from these scholarships.

Mr. Geffen created the fund in 2012 with a visionary contribution that sparked new thinking about how to address medical education debt and inspired additional action around this cause across the country.

I invite you to read more about this gift at UCLA Newsroom.

Mr. Geffen’s magnanimity to UCLA and shared belief in our mission continues to advance our ability to provide opportunities and improve lives. I know that his contributions will have a lasting and meaningful impact.
