Ten Years Aglow

On Thursday, March 14, 2024, we invite our incredible Cal community — alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends like you all over the world — to show your support for our remarkable university during the 10th Big Give. A decade strong, this annual day of giving celebrates a community aglow with Cal spirit. Contests and matches spark friendly competition, the hashtag #CalBigGive builds awareness and excitement, but it’s YOU, your dedication, and generosity that glow on as we mark 10 years of fueling innovation, transforming lives, and illuminating all that’s possible at UC Berkeley and beyond.


Show your Berkeley pride on March 14 and share with the Cal community how you’re helping Berkeley’s light shine brighter than ever before: Tell us on social media how Berkeley’s brilliance gleams in your eyes; get a head start on this year’s contests by checking out our 2024 contest preview; and learn about being a Big Give Ambassador — new this year is our You+2 program where, if you sign up as an Ambassador, make your own gift, and get two others to give through your unique URL, you’ll earn exclusive Big Give items.


Your commitment to UC Berkeley means the world to us. See you March 14!
