The last time that UC Berkeley held Big Give, the campus’s annual 24-hour fundraising blitz, it took place on March 12, 2020 — just as our world was beginning to grapple with the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since then, the UC Berkeley community has kept the blue and gold spirit strong by: repurposing labs for COVID research and PPE fabrication; making sure students can thrive in challenging times; innovating ways to keep connections strong for classes, clubs, and cohorts; and shining light on expert perspectives that illuminate pathways through some of the most complicated times in modern history.
On March 11, 2021, we invite Cal parents, alumni, students, faculty, staff and friends to rally in a special Big Give to support UC Berkeley and build awareness and excitement while ensuring the continued excellence and influence of Berkeley.
We invite you to visit BigGive.berkeley.edu today to see the impact of past Big Gives, preview contests, share your Berkeley moments and check out your fellow Golden Bears’ social media contributions. Then come back on March 11 to join in the excitement and help your favorite schools, clubs, and programs win contest prizes, catalyze their potential and make Berkeley moments possible for years to come.
