Partnership Program

Supporting the Cal Alumni Community

The Cal Alumni Association (CAA) works with more than 25 partners ranging from national and local companies to campus organizations, all of which contribute to CAA’s revenue and provide discounts and services to Cal alumni. Over the past 20 years of working with various partners, CAA has been able to increase the number of opportunities we provide for the UC Berkeley community.

Financial support from CAA’s partners helps offset the costs of vital programming, such as alumni networking opportunities, athletics tailgates, and hoops parties.
