What is it?

Big Give is an online fundraising event taking place during Big Game week, giving you and the entire Cal community — alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends — the chance to come together to support your favorite schools and programs, and help those schools and programs win prize money. This is our third annual Big Give event.

Why does Cal do this?
