$100 Million Gift to UCLA for School for Grades 6-12

November 12, 2015

David Geffen, the entertainment industry executive, is giving $100 million to the University of California at Los Angeles for the institution to create a school for grades 6-12. The effort is in part to create new options for education, with scholarships for low-income students. But a key motivating factor is to expand high-quality education options that would be available for the children of UCLA faculty members. Officials said the availability of affordable, high-quality education is a key factor in faculty recruitment efforts.

With this gift and others in the past, Geffen has donated a total of $400 million to UCLA.
