Dear Mr. Larian,

On behalf of UCLA Health President Johnese Spisso and our team of front-line healthcare professions, we are deeply grateful for your extremely generous gift to the COVID-19 Coronavirus Patient Care Fund (#64688o) which will provide vital support for COVID-19 patients through UCLA Health hospitals and clinics. Your gift will be rapidly deployed to provide vital support now for the following:

  • Support patient and family care
  • Provide social services
  • Supply patient care equipment, supplies, etc. 
  • Seed innovation through cross-campus collaborations that lead to advances in testing, treatment, and devices for COVID-19 Coronavirus and related health concerns
  • Build resilience and alleviate stress on frontline healthcare providers through emergency assistance with meals and well-being

We are also extremely grateful for your in-kind gifts of essential PPE equipment for including the N95 masks and your offers to help source and utilize other resources. With the ever changing situation we are all facing, UCLA Health is ready to meet the challenges associated with this virus. As needs escalate, your support will continue to be even more essential.  

We would be extremely grateful to you if you could share with others how UCLA is responding to the COVID-19 Coronavirus and encourage others to join you in this mission.  For the most up-to-date information: https://www.uclahealth.org/coronavirus
