We hope you’ll join us for this year’s Big Give, UC Berkeley’s annual day of fundraising. For 24 hours, the entire Cal community is invited to support their favorite schools and programs, as they compete for contest prizes and bragging rights, emphasizing the power of philanthropy.
HOW DOES GIVING HELP THE JACOBS INSTITUTE?
A gift to the Jacobs Institute helps ensure our students have access to the latest tools and technology; provides financial support to students who are unable to pay for a Maker Pass; supports our public lecture series and programs; and helps lead initiatives and grant programs, like the Jacobs Innovation Catalysts Grant and our Engineering Design Scholars Program.
HOW CAN JACOBS STUDENTS GET INVOLVED?
Big Give is not just about raising money for the Jacobs Institute—it’s about community spirit and giving back to the colleges and programs that have contributed to your experience at UC Berkeley! Gifts of all amounts go a long way, and this year, we hope to highlight that with our $10 Impact Campaign.
For every 50 gifts we receive, we will raffle off one Maker Pass! Help us meet our goal of 300 gifts this year. All students who donate to Big Give will be automatically entered into the raffle, but all students can enter the raffle here.
