What is it?

Big Give is an online fundraising event that began in 2014, 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.

Is my Big Give contribution tax-deductible?

Yes. Your gift is tax-deductible.

Why does Cal do this?

This effort celebrates all the moments of Berkeley by supporting students, faculty, and research — and keeping Berkeley the No. 1 public university in the world. From the smallest gift to the biggest, your generosity to Berkeley holds truly transformative power on campus and in the world at large.

Didn’t this used to be in November?

Good eye! Yes, we’ve moved it to March 8, 2018.
