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 university honors your dedication to Cal with exclusive member benefits, including special events and access to a campus concierge through our office. Your leadership gift also qualifies you for membership in The Charter Hill Society, Berkeley’s campuswide philanthropic circle. Parents who make a $10,000 annual gift at the Charter Hill Partner Level will also be invited to a special parent breakfast reception when their student graduates. These special events are in addition to all the benefits conveyed at the Charter Hill Partner Level. For a complete list, please go to

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.

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