Goal for Class of 2017 Campaign: $4,000
In the 1980's, the University of California received more than 50% of its budget from the state; in 2004, it had declined to about 35%. But today it receives, at best, only 12% of its budget from the state! Full in-state tuition ($13,432) covers only a portion of the actual cost of educating a Berkeley student, leaving a gap of about $20,000 per student each year that the university provides.
As state support declines and the cost of maintaining a premier university continues to grow, private support has become a critical and necessary part of Cal's funding model.
The 2017 Class Gift will go towards purchasing more umbrella tables, such as those that were used for the Coffee Lab patio renovation, to create more spaces for students to eat, relax, and spend time together.
We are all working hard to earn our degrees, so let’s make sure they maintain their value. When you invest in Chemistry at Cal, you are giving the college the resources it needs to continue its excellence and even to grow stronger for years to come. What better investment is there...than yourself?
Leave a lasting legacy, give something back, and help make a difference in the lives of future Berkeley students.
As current students, you know the needs of the College best!
These groups take into account the overall number of private donors to an institution, as well as the total dollar amount of contributions, when considering grants. Every contribution really counts!
There are several ways to make a gift to the Class of 2017 Campaign:
2. Stop by 420 Latimer Hall: Mon- Fri; 9am-5pm.
3. Visit the Class Gift Table at the next student event.
