Big Give, designed to celebrate all that makes Berkeley special, provides thousands of alumni, current students, parents, faculty, staff, and friends an opportunity to show some school spirit and support Cal for years to come.

Providing monetary gifts to aid schools, colleges and programs across the university is just a small portion of what this day is really about. Collaboration is a key component of Big Give — coming together as a unit to support a common goal under the guise of friendly competition makes this day so unique.

In support of each and every graduate student at Cal, the Graduate Division will be focusing on supporting the Graduate Student Experience Fund during this year’s Big Give. 

Make a Gift

Here’s how you can participate:

  1. Make a gift!
    Our goal is to increase participation, and any amount helps! 
  2. Share, retweet or repost on our social media channels.
    Help us amplify our message by sharing our content — be sure to tag #CalBigGive and #GoBigforGrads for the greatest impact.

Gifts made toward the Graduate Student Experience Fund will assist students with health education and wellness, housing, parenting support, community engagement, and professional development.

Many of you have supported the Graduate Division’s Big Give campaigns in the past and we are grateful for your continued support. We invite you, both past and future donors, to learn a little more about Big Give and the Graduate Student Experience Fund.
