Additional Giving Opportunities

In order to preserve the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library and enhance the quality of its unique collections, beautiful facility and public programs, the Center for 17th- & 18th-Century Studies (the administrative arm of the library) and Clark depend on substantial support beyond what the state of California can provide. Private contributions play a key role in enabling us to expand the Clark’s holdings, support innovative research for undergraduate and graduate students and postdoctoral scholars, offer affordable Center and Clark academic programs and performances, and sustain the elegant Library and grounds. We currently have opportunities for support in the following areas:

  • General donations for areas of greatest need
  • Fellowships for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars
  • Chamber Music at the Clark concert series
  • Exhibition program
  • Preservation and conservation/restoration projects
  • Clark Library gardens projects
  • Book and manuscript acquisitions for the Clark Library’s collections
  • Henry J. Bruman Summer Chamber Music Festival

Donations for the additional categories above can be made online at https://giving.ucla.edu/Campaign/Donate.aspx?SiteNum=2467 or by mailing a check made payable to UCLA Foundation to:
