What is Berkeley Loyal?+

Berkeley Loyal is a giving society that honors donors who have made gifts to UC Berkeley in consecutive fiscal years (July 1–June 30). Donors who have made gifts in each of the three most recent fiscal years, as well as current Cal parents and students who have made gifts in each of the two most recent fiscal years, become members of Berkeley Loyal. When this distinction is achieved, these committed supporters are recognized for the total number of fiscal years in which they have made gifts to Cal.

How do I become a member of Berkeley Loyal?+

Just make a gift in each of Berkeley’s three most recent fiscal years (or two most recent fiscal years for current Cal parents or students) and you will automatically become a member of Berkeley Loyal.

What recognition will I receive?+

Berkeley Loyal members receive an annual communication confirming their continued status and the number of years in which they’ve made gifts. New members and those reaching new tier levels also receive a special window decal showing their membership tier and participation year so that they can display with pride their commitment to the university.

What happens if I miss a year?+

If you miss a fiscal year of giving, you will experience a lapse in Berkeley Loyal membership. Membership can be reinstated with three consecutive fiscal years of support. At that time, you will be welcomed back at the tier that includes the total number of fiscal years in which you’ve made gifts to Berkeley.

Which gifts count?+

Your annual contributions of any amount, to any school, college, department, or program on the Berkeley campus will establish and sustain your membership in Berkeley Loyal, which is designed to recognize your consistent annual support.

Do pledges count?+

Pledges are not applied toward membership, though contributions you make toward your pledges do count.
