you know that many companies have matching corporate contributions for charitable
donations? For example, if you donate $100 to CEED and work for a company that matches donations, your
company will also donate $100 to CEED, and you will be credited with a $200
(tax deductible) donation to CEED because the company match is on your behalf.
is an excellent way to support CEED and double your individual impact by leveraging
available company resources. Not sure if your company provides donor
matching funds or how to designate them for CEED? Check with your HR department
CEED’s Inaugural Campaign – THIS CAMPAIGN IS NOW OVER! THANKS FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
deposit….No return, a popular refrain that you know all too well if you were a
part of the UCLA Minority Engineering Program (MEP), the UCLA Center for Underrepresented
Students (CUES) or the UCLA Center for Excellence in Engineering and Diversity (CEED). Three names but one motive: to recruit, retain and graduate underrepresented minority engineering and computer science students. This Inaugural
Alumni Fundraising Campaign has been created to organize the gift giving
efforts for CEED at a time when the program really needs your support. The
objective for this initial effort is to
raise $250,000 from those who know first-hand the value of CEED’s academic,
personal and professional development programs.
Why Give, Why Now?
these economic times, there have been unprecedented state budget cuts in the money provided for secondary and post
secondary education on both the state and federal level. Additionally, the cost
of post secondary education continues to rise. In fact, tuition at the
University of California, which is currently $12,845, is nearly three
times the amount it was ten years ago.
Donations to CEED provide immediate funds to make up for these budget
shortfalls and allow us to allocate these funds toward the program’s priorities.
These gifts give CEED the flexibility to carry out and enhance our student
programs on the precollege and undergraduate level; particularly, they allow
CEED to support the vital staff behind CEED’s program operation. Without support,
CEED looks at the possibility of reducing an already minimal staff. At a time
when state support provides just a
small percentage of the operating budget, annual gifts — both large and small
— are essential to maintaining the program’s quality and effectiveness.
