Support Our Work
The Williams Institute’s research and education programs depend on donor support. Opportunities to give include:
Friends: Become a friend of the Williams Institute by making a gift up to $500 and receive tickets and special invitations to Institute education programs and events.
Fundraising Events: The Williams Institute hosts three annual fundraising events in New York, Los Angeles and Washington, DC. Institute events include an educational program, Gala and Awards reception, and Founders dinner for major donors. Fundraising events are a great way to get know the Institute’s work and staff and to support the Williams Institute’s key research priorities. To view our upcoming events, click here.
Endowment: Donors to the Williams Institute endowment share in the vision of creating an enduring research center dedicated to advancing sexual orientation and gender identity law and policy. The endowment ensures that the Institute’s work will be carried out in perpetuity at the UCLA School of Law.
Planned Giving: The Williams Institute and the UCLA Office of Planned and Major Gifts can work with donors on a number of planned giving options. Please contact Hamid Jahangard at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or visit http://www.legacy.ucla.edu/.
