Cal Athletics Fund members support all 875 student-athletes who compete for and attend the No. 1 public institution in the world. The extraordinary young men and women who represent the Golden Bears are campus leaders, distinguished students, valued community members and dedicated athletes. They chose Cal for its unmatched academic rigor and renowned athletic success. And they continually seek to further the tradition of excellence made possible by members of the Cal Athletics Fund.

Together, we’ve witnessed 45 straight years of national championships at Cal and in total we’ve captured 95 national team titles in 16 different sports. This success is directly tied to our generous donors who serve as the foundation of the Cal Athletics Fund. Our donors’ impact is substantial and helps cover programmatic expenses, including academic services, travel costs, uniforms, equipment and recruiting costs. Our members are critical to providing Cal student-athletes with the resources they need to reach their academic and athletic potential.

Many of these same student-athletes, thankful for the generosity bestowed upon them during their time in Berkeley, give back after graduating and become vital members of the Cal Athletics Fund, helping to propel the next generation of Golden Bears to academic and athletic success.

On behalf of our student-athletes, coaches and staff, thank you for your interest in the Cal Athletics Fund.

Go Bears!

Jim Knowlton
Director of Athletics

Thank you for your generosity.

You make the education of 875 talented young men and women across our 30 athletic programs possible. Go Bears!
