Creating a Lasting Connection to Cal
A cornerstone of the Cal Alumni Association (CAA), The CAA Fund significantly affects vital services for alumni, students, and the future of the University. CAA is a self-funded 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that relies on contributions to operate its programs and provide scholarships to Cal students. Your annual investment in The CAA Fund ensures that we actively and effectively inform, involve, and inspire all alumni to stay connected to the University and to each other.
When you choose to make a gift to The CAA Fund, you can direct it where the need is greatest or select from the following program areas:
Alumni Events celebrate your alma mater through events that appeal to the spirited and intellectual Bear in you.
Alumni Chapters Program connects more than 25,000 alumni nationwide through geographic, cultural, and special interest affinities.
California Magazine keeps you informed about UC Berkeley’s pioneering achievements, campus news, and provides updates on fellow alumni.
