News, Notes, and How to Help
The UCLA Athletic Department is taking the gloves off and putting on the brass knuckles. This will be a state of the art football training facility and we at BruinAuthority.com are excited to support the program, the project, and the UCLA employees helping to make this happen.
How To Help
“UCLA is a special place for student-athletes to compete and pursue their dreams. To be able to add a football facility that will help us with player development and growth is simply fantastic. There is so much history here and so many incredible players and moments to celebrate. I love the challenge to get after this, and I know our donors will step up. Chancellor Block and Dan Guerrero have shown tremendous support for this athletic program and for our football team. We talk a lot about family within our program, and now, we need the entire UCLA family to join us on this endeavor. I can’t wait to get this effort underway.” – UCLA Head Football Coach Jim Mora
Donate to the $50 million dollar Football Training Athletic Facility.

Other Ways You Can Be Supportive:
Donate to the Wooden Athletic Fund.
Contact the UCLA Athletics Development office at (310) 206-3302 or email at email@example.com for other ways to help.
Make a deposit on 2014 season tickets. We are going to be good, and the best seats are going to dry up fast. It helps the program to sell the seats, it helps the team to have a full house, and it will help you to be part of something great.
Support the Jim Mora Count on Me Family Foundation. This is Jim and Shannon Mora’s way to make the world a better place and donating to it is well worth while. Since its inception, the Foundation has donated more than 1.8 million to children-in-need organizations such as the Special Olympics and the UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital. The 2014 Jim Mora Celebrity Golf Classic will take place at Riviera Country Club on May 19.
Email a coach, an administrator, anyone at UCLA, and let them know you are proud to be part of the Bruin Family today. If you bought season tickets or have donated, let them know that as well. We encourage you to do this because it only takes a minute, is free to do, and will make a big difference to these hard workers dedicated to UCLA.
firstname.lastname@example.org – Athletic Director Dan Guerrero. This man gets a lot of flak from other Bruin fan sites but he has achieved a lot in his tenure such as the new $11 million Spieker Aquatics Center used by our aquatics teams, the 2008 renovation of Jackie Robinson Stadium, the $180 million remodel of Pauley Pavilion, and the current renovation of Drake Stadium. All of these required an amazing amount of fund raising AND dedication. They don’t just happen by themselves. Give the man credit when it is due.
email@example.com – Chancellor Gene Block. If you like what is going on at UCLA, let the head man know. He has the final say on most of the improvements going on around campus.
firstname.lastname@example.org – Coach Mora. This email actually goes to his executive assistant Jolie Oliver (who we think practically runs the entire football program – trust us, she is indispensable).
Other emails – if you want to let the assistants know you appreciate them (we highly recommend it – they will often reply too !) or want to contact some other administrators, here you go.
News And Updates
The Los Angeles Times reported March 4th, that fund raising has eclipsed $30 million so far with $20 million to go.
