MESSAGE FROM ATHLETIC DIRECTOR DAN GUERRERO

Thank you for your generous support of UCLA Athletics through your investment in the Wooden Athletic Fund. Your philanthropic support of the Wooden Athletic Fund plays a pivotal role in our ability to provide our coaches and student-athletes with the resources they need to compete and succeed at the highest levels – both in competition and in the classroom.

The Wooden Athletic Fund covers a significant portion of program expenses, including scholarships, academic services, life skills development and recruiting for all 25 of our sports. Through your investment, you are making a direct and lasting impact on the futures of our student-athletes.

Thank you and Go Bruins!

Dan Guerrero
Director of Athletics

THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROUS SUPPORT!

As student-athlete scholarship costs and the overall cost of providing the best possible UCLA student-athlete experience continue to rise, UCLA Athletics would not be a leader in the NCAA without the support of each and every Wooden Athletic Fund member. Here is how your support of the Wooden Athletic Fund positively impacts nearly 700 student-athletes at UCLA.
