The guiding philosophy of Cal Athletics is to provide our 875 scholar-athletes with a well-rounded and all-encompassing opportunity for development.

As educational costs rise, donors to the Cal Athletics Fund make it possible for our 875 scholar-athletes to excel — academically, athletically, personally and professionally — at the best public university in the world.

As a donor to Cal Athletics, you are an important member of the Cal Athletics Fund. You invest in the future of our University, and you directly invest in the future of each one of the exceptional leaders who represent our Golden Bears. Because of you, our student-athletes train in world-class facilities, are led by extraordinary coaches and receive an unparalleled academic experience.

Because of you, this generation of Golden Bears will graduate well-prepared to change the world.

“I chose Cal because it resonates well with who I am, both academically and athletically. The atmosphere is a breath of fresh air to me, I feel empowered when I step on campus. Furthermore, I am fueled by the expectations that are present whenever I sport my Cal gear. I am energized by the sole thought of representing UC Berkeley.”
