Leadership Giving


You make a powerful statement of support when you invest in your child’s education through a leadership gift to Berkeley. Your generosity and example impact your student and embolden the dreams and aspirations of all Cal students.

The Parents Leadership Circle (PLC) engages and recognizes parents who support Berkeley with an annual gift of $5,000 or more at any of the following levels:

  • Chancellor Level: $25,000 or more
  • Dean Level: $10,000–$24,999
  • Campanile Level: $5,000–$9,999

Your gift may be unrestricted and applied to areas of greatest campus need, or you can designate a school, college or campus program that inspires you or has impacted your family. Annual leadership gifts strengthen student services, support Berkeley’s stellar faculty, and uphold Cal’s commitment to the public good.

The university honors your dedication to Cal with exclusive PLC member benefits, including special events and access to a campus concierge. Your leadership gift also qualifies you for membership in The Charter Hill Society, Berkeley’s campuswide philanthropic circle.

Please join other Cal parents in this vital effort to make a difference at Berkeley!
