How you can support the Fund

Sponsoring a table at our annual awards dinner, becoming a member of the Berkeley 100, writing a generous check or gifting shares of appreciated stock or volunteering time, products or services are a few of the ways you can contribute to the work of the Fund.

Awards Dinner

Gifts in Kind
Donations of goods and services are appreciated too! Section 170(e)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code allows qualifying companies a deduction of up to twice the cost of donated inventory.

The Berkeley 100

Individual and corporate members provide core support by pledging $1000 or more a year.

Benefits include an invitation-only thank you event, recognition in the local press and the opportunity to advise the Board of Directors.

For more information please contact the Fund office at 510.525.5272.


Support the Fund with your time and skills. Bookkeeping, database maintenance, mailing preparation and program support are needed throughout the year.

Grant research and application processing, marketing tasks such as brochure design, newsletter layout, and press release production also require dedicated volunteers.

For these and more volunteer opportunities, contact our office at 510.525.5272.
