Make Little Bruin Wishes Come True This Holiday Season!

Fulfilling Little Bruin Wishes Every Holiday Season!

The holiday season is a time to enjoy with family and loved ones and to focus on community and generosity. For many parenting students at UCLA, balancing the finances of tuition and providing for their families can be extremely challenging. It can be even more stressful during the holiday season.

Little Bruin Wishes, an annual campaign of the Bruin Resource Center's Students with Dependents program, allows the UCLA community to support our parenting students and their families who may otherwise struggle to fulfill their children's holiday wishlists. Your gift to our Little Bruin Wishes campaign ensures that parenting UCLA students don't have to choose between budgeting for their education and providing holiday gifts to their Little Bruins.

Support Our UCLA Community

Since 2015, Students with Dependents has granted the holiday wishes of thousands of UCLA families. Help us reach our goal of $10,000 to provide at least one gift for every family member!

Once we have fulfilled all families' wish lists, all remaining funds will support Students with Dependents programs throughout the year, including community and social events, advocacy for child-friendly university accommodations like lactation spaces, financial support through scholarships and emergency funding, mental health services, and one-on-one counseling.

Make Your Gift Today and Spread the Word!

Making a monetary donation on this page is the best way to provide our staff with the most flexibility and ease in fulfilling wish lists. 

Thanks to you, parenting students won't have to choose between their education and holiday gifts for their families and hundreds of Little Bruins will have something to smile about this holiday season.
