Big Give | Now is the Moment

In honor of Big Give, we’re celebrating the BIG moments that define our alumni association. The Cal Alumni Association (CAA) works to further Cal’s legacy of excellence in all that we do, and your support makes our work possible.

Gifts made to your alumni association on Big Give support the programs, events, and opportunities for lifelong learning that make our alma mater special. We invite you to show your Cal spirit by making a gift to the Cal Alumni Association on Big Give.

Give Now

A BIG Contest

This year on Big Give, we’re celebrating YOUR Berkeley moment!

Share a photo of your Berkeley Moment: that moment you first heard the Campanile bells ring, the moment you crossed the stage at graduation, or moments spent reconnecting with Cal friends that have become family.

You can share your Berkeley Moment and enter to win in one of three ways:

  • On Facebook: Comment on CAA’s Berkeley Moment posts with your photo and the hashtags #BearsGiveBack and #CalBigGive.
  • On Instagram: Tag your Berkeley Moment photos #BearsGiveBack and #CalBigGive.
  • By Email: Send your photo to with the subject line “Berkeley Moment”.

By submitting your photo, you also have the chance to win one of two BIG prizes: A two-night stay for up to four people at the Pinecrest Chalet, a CAA-owned and operated mountain resort in Pinecrest, California, or a one-night stay and breakfast for two at Claremont Club & Spa, a Fairmont Hotel, in Berkeley, California.
