Please consider making an online gift the UCLA Curtis Center to support our programs and operating budget.


By making a donation, you help advance our mission of providing an increasing number of US students access to an internationally bench-marked, world-class mathematics education. Our current priorities are as vital and ambitious as the achievements that anchor our work.

Dorothy Smith Curtis

Mrs. Dorothy Smith Curtis was a wife, mother and educator whose contributions led to the establishment of The Philip C. Curtis Jr. Center and its success working towards a world class mathematics education for all students. While the late Professor Phil Curtis provided energetic inspiration, Dot was the glue that held it all together. Dorothy passed away peacefully on November 16th, 2020, and we miss her tremendously.
