Endowment Circle Donors

The REAG Endowment ensures stable funding for the continued growth of UCLA REAG.

The endowment, which now stands at $1,000,000, was seeded with a $500,000 matching challenge grant from John Long, President & CEO of Highridge Partners, which was matched by donations from dedicated alumni in the industry. John is an alumnus of UCLA and Founding Chairman of the UCLA Ziman Center for Real Estate. His commitment to the creation of the REAG Endowment supports a vision to increase engagement of the UCLA real estate alumni community among all levels of experience.

The ultimate measure of a great real estate center is the integration of academic excellence, industry relevant research, industry out-reach, and exceptional alumni participation and value and UCLA REAG will be the force that drives the last piece of making UCLA the premier institution for real estate,” said Long.

BENEFITS

By contributing to the UCLA REAG Endowment, you gain an opportunity to join the REAG Endowment Circle – a select group of real estate professionals who believe in the strength of the UCLA REAG network and have contributed financially to REAG’s growth. The Endowment Circle is invited to multiple exclusive events throughout the year and receives additional benefits such as complimentary invitations to select UCLA Anderson/Ziman Center research events, access to the Distinguished Small Group Dinner series, a Board Associate designation for the Ziman Center, an invitation to at least one Ziman Board Meeting every two years, complementary REAG membership for two years, and an opportunity to serve on a REAG Board committee of your choice.

UCLA REAG appreciates donations at all levels; however, the minimum commitment to join the Endowment Circle is $5,000, which can be paid over the two year membership period.  Higher levels of donations offer additional exclusive opportunities.

Contact Peter Saephanh if you would like to join.
