Make a Gift
Why donate to CAA? Because you care. Because it deepens your connection to the greater Cal community. And because your support makes a powerful difference in the lives of alumni and students.
The CAA Fund
When you donate to The CAA Fund, your gift goes where the need is the greatest. As a cornerstone of CAA, this fund supports essential services for alumni, students, and the future of UC Berkeley.
The CAA Fund Society
The CAA Fund Society is a group of alumni and friends who create a lasting connection to Cal through their philanthropic leadership and commitment to our alumni association. An annual contribution of $1,000 or more establishes your membership.
The Achievement Award Program
Your support of the Achievement Award Program (TAAP) gives high-achieving students with financial need the resources to excel. TAAP draws a diverse pool of students to the university who might not otherwise have the means to a world-class education.
The Leadership Award
Your gift to this scholarship supports the leaders of tomorrow. Leadership Award Scholars are acknowledged for their innovative and motivational leadership at work, school, and in the community. They rally others to engage with the issues of the day.
