UPDATE: After the passing of the anti-Israel BDS resolution by UCLA’s student government last Tuesday, major UCLA donor and political leader Gary Aminoff had released a statement pledging to pull funds unless the University administration publicly denounced the resolution. Aminoff was pleased to hear the news of UCLA Chancellor Gene Block’s immediate public response rejecting divestment from Israel. He applauds the Chancellor and the Board of Regents for their statement and revokes his original decision of withholding donations to UCLA.
Please convey my congratulations to Chancellor Block and the Regents of the University of California for wisely rejecting the BDS Resolution passed by the Student Council.
I appreciate their actions and his comments. I will continue to support UCLA and the UCLA Foundation, as I have in the past.
I am very proud to be an alumnus of this great institution.
Thank you for all your help.
