College of Natural Resources, UC Berkeley

New Alumni Challenge

Double or Triple your impact!

More than 5,000 Cal alumni contributed over $680,000 last year. Please help us make this year's challenge a success. As a CNR alum, you can direct your gift to one of the College’s most popular funds-- The Berkeley Fund for Natural Resources. This fund supports student programs at CNR, including Sponsored Projects for Undergraduate Research (SPUR), CNR Field and Laboratory Experiences, CNR-Specific Tutoring in Chemistry, Global Theme House, the Student Resource Center, and more.

Or, you can choose another area to support at the College's givetocal site.

Give today and help keep Cal the number one public university in the world!

Who's eligible?

All undergraduate and graduate alumni from the Classes of 2009 to 2013, plus all current undergraduate and graduate students who will graduate in spring 2013 are eligible.

Alumni who graduated from Cal from 2009 to 2013 will receive a $1 to $1 match - doubling their philanthropic donation!

Students who are graduating in 2014 will receive a $2 to $1 match - tripling their philanthropic donation!

What is matched?

Gifts made (up to $1,000 per donor) before December 31, 2013, to any UC Berkeley school, college, or program. Donors who make any combination of gifts totaling $500 or more will become members of Cal's The Charter Hill Society! Your gift to the College of Natural Resources at this level will also make you a member of the Golden Poppy Circle, in the Educator's Society, at CNR.

If I made a New Alumni Challenge gift last year, am I still eligible?

Yes! Gifts from eligible alums (see above) qualify up to $1,000. Gifts from alumni who will graduated in 2008 no longer qualify for the challenge match, but we hope you will still continue to support your alma mater!

Many Ways to Give!
