The annual Scholarship Banquet is held to recognize contributors of athletic named scholarships and the student-athletes receiving those scholarships. We have been hosting this event for the past ten consecutive years. This dinner provides our donors an opportunity to hear and see firsthand the impact their financial support has on our student-athletes lives and gives our student-athletes a chance to connect and talk about their life at Cal with the donors that support their scholarship. Cal Athletics pays for more than $14.3 million in scholarships every year.

This prestigious event is open to all Cal Athletics Fund members who have donated a minimum of $1,200 (Golden C Club level) in the prior fiscal year,* the annual luncheon features a program honoring the generosity of Cal Athletics donors with keynote speakers and recognition awards.
To ensure you receive an invitation to next fiscal year’s thank you luncheon, please make a gift today.
