We encourage all Wooden Athletic Fund members to consider “Becoming a Champion” by increasing your support of our student-athletes by upgrading to the next membership level for the upcoming year. Along
with all regularly offered membership benefits at your new membership level, all donors who “Become a Champion” will receive an exclusive Wooden Athletic Fund Member Adidas hat. Last year more than 500 donors upgraded their membership levels and contributed a total of more the $2.5 million in additional support for UCLA student-athletes. More information is available on page 3 of this guide.
All season ticket holders have the opportunity to relocate season ticket and parking locations at our annual Select-a-Seat events. All seating and parking that was not renewed from the previous season is made available for purchase or improvement based on Wooden Athletic Fund donation minimums. Priority for improvement is based upon Wooden Athletic Fund membership level and years of membership at that level.
Information about the donations required for specific priority seating areas is included in this guide and online at www.WoodenAthleticFund.com
The Wooden Athletic Fund is the backbone of UCLA’s financial commitment to support the educational and athletic excellence of the 700 student-athletes who compete for the Bruins. The annual philanthropic support generated by the Wooden Athletic Fund covers critical areas of need including student-athlete scholarships and academic support. With constantly rising educational expenses and less than 3% of UCLA Athletics’ annual revenue coming from University support, your philanthropic support is more important now than ever.
For gifts of under $25,000, Wooden Athletic Fund benefits such as priority seating and parking are offered only for gifts directed to the Wooden Athletic Fund. The benefits offered for gifts made to specific sports vary by sport or project and the amount of your gift. Donors who contribute $25,000 or more annually to a single sport will also be recognized with non-seating Wooden Athletic Fund member benefits at the Director’s Circle level and donors who contribute $50,000 or more annually to a single sport will be recognized with non-seating Wooden Athletic Fund member benefits at the John R. Wooden Benefactor level.
Yes. A single annual gift to the Wooden Athletic Fund allows members to enjoy priority seating and parking benefits for both Football and Men’s Basketball. If there is a per seat donation requirement that applies to your season ticket locations for both Football and Men’s Basketball, the higher of those two requirements
determines your minimum annual WAF donation amount to maintain priority area season tickets for both sports.
