Gift Giving Opportunities

For many years, the American Indian Studies Center has been involved in American Indian communities and the issues that affect them. In addition to supporting academic work on American Indian issues, the Center has also supported conferences and symposia on repatriation, tribal recognition, California tribes, the Indian Child Welfare Act, gaming, Project Peacemaker, and Project HOOP.

The Center is the place on the UCLA campus where American Indian graduate and undergraduate student organizations gather, study, and socialize.

By donating to the Friends of the American Indian Studies Center, your gift may be used for the following:

Student Support - This funding will support student requests for travel to conferences, campus colloquia, and student-sponsored events. It helps fund student research and cultural activities, as well as justice initiatives and education.

Community Outreach - Funding to community outreach efforts will support our efforts to link projects and events with American Indian community partners and other academic stakeholders.
