Around Cal

Berkeley Magazine, Fall 1998


Record numbers of alumni and friends are responding to UC Berkeley's drive to raise $1.1 billion in the Campaign for the New Century. In the last fiscal year, more gifts and pledges were made to the campus than in any other single year -- nearly 70,000. As a result, $812.2 million has been raised toward the campaign goal.

Another sign of success is the level of participation in Berkeley's campaign by alumni and friends. After years of hovering at around 10 percent, Cal's alumni-giving rate reached 14 percent -- for the second straight time -- in the last fiscal year. The figures hold the promise of a new tradition of giving to the campus, thanks to hundreds of volunteers who have worked long hours to reach out to other alumni and friends.
