Join the UCLA REAG Endowment Circle

The REAG Endowment ensures stable funding for the continued growth of UCLA REAG. Earnings from the Endowment fund a full-time Director focused on conducting outreach to promote REAG in the industry. The Director also serves as the primary point of contact for all REAG members, connecting alumni and professionals across the organization as well as facilitating ties between alumni, industry and the university.

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.

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.
