Young alumni—those who have graduated in the last 10 years—make up 25 percent of all living undergraduate Cal alumni. Your participation is essential in establishing a foundation for the strength and excellence of the Library.

Give Now Button

Check out our honor roll of young alumni who donated to the Library between July 1, 2009 and June 30, 2010. Their gifts were matched 3:1 by the UC Berkeley Foundation Board of Trustees through the New Alumni Challenge.

Power in numbers

It's not how much you give, but the fact that you choose to give that matters. Every gift counts. Here are some examples of how gifts to the Library are used:

  • Adding new printed and electronic resources to the collections
  • Renovating study spaces like the reading rooms in Doe Library
  • Supporting creative use of library materials by faculty and students
  • Hosting special events to connect the Berkeley community with local authors and poets
  • Implementing unique programs like the Graphic Arts Loan Collection that lends framed, original lithographs, etchings, engravings and other works of art

Why you should participate

Young alumni understand the fundamental role the Library plays in students' lives and the way the Library makes the university’s mission of teaching, research and public service a reality. Support the University Library today by making an online gift!

Many employers match the charitable gifts of their employees. Use our employer matching gift search to see if your company participates in matching charitable gifts.
