Support the Center for Chinese Studies

The importance of China and of understanding China has never been greater. Your support can help us to carry out its mission of promoting Chinese culture, facilitating cutting-edge academic research, and improving communication and mutual understanding between the US and China. Through our sponsored international symposia, lectures, workshops, programs in culture and the arts, and opportunities for cultural exchange and education, we strive to keep our community informed and ensure that our students are prepared for careers in international diplomacy, education, or in the global marketplace,

We welcome gifts of any size and all gifts are tax deductible. You may elect to have the Center for Chinese Studies allocate your gift to where the need is greatest, or target a particular activity or project. You may make your contribution via check or credit card.

If you have any questions about giving to the Center for Chinese Studies, contact Esther Jou, Assistant Director, at (310) 825-8683, or visit the UCLA International Institute's support section. We will be happy to discuss specific gift opportunities such as endowments, bequests, or planned gifts that may provide additional tax benefits and income to the donor.
