Berkeley Engineering Fund

Berkeley Engineering Fund

As every engineer knows, there’s power in numbers. And each year, thousands of Berkeley Engineering alumni, parents, friends and current students prove it by giving to the Berkeley Engineering Fund. Their contributions come in all sizes — from single digits to five or more digits. Together, they create a vital stream of revenue, which the dean can use to invest in one-of-a-kind opportunities and respond to unforeseen challenges.

Put simply, the fund helps the college stay nimble and keep pace with its peers, like Stanford and MIT, who have larger endowments and are far less vulnerable to swings in state funding levels. It’s no wonder that the fund is the dean’s top fundraising priority.

Your gift to the Berkeley Engineering Fund supports our students and faculty, directly and indirectly. For example, an increasing amount of fund revenue strengthens the collegiate experience with community-building activities and leadership development programs. The dean also uses the fund to provide the core budgets for student-led organizations, to upgrade our laboratory and teaching facilities and to provide seed funding for novel research initiatives.

Individuals contributing $2,500 or more are welcomed to the Dean’s Society and enjoy special communications, events and other donor benefits.
