Big thanks: Haas raises nearly $2.9 million during Big Give fundraising blitz

Haas doubled its donations to Big Give this year, raising nearly $2.9 million during the annual 24-hour campus-wide online fundraising blitz.

A record total of $2,808,701 poured in from 610 gifts to support students, faculty, and campus programs.

Big Give launched in 2014 to give the entire Cal community — alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends — the chance to come together to support favorite schools and programs, and to help those schools and programs win prize money.

“It’s inspiring to watch the entire community come together to maintain the excellence of our school during the Big Give,” said Tracy Mills, senior director of Development and Alumni Relations at Haas. “The total we raised didn’t come from one big gift, it was the combination of hundreds of people working together to support Berkeley Haas.”

Campus-wide, Big Give raised $22.4 million from 8,646 gifts. Haas was the third largest overall donor following Cal Athletics and the University Library. Haas also won the prize for the most total number of gifts to one fund and the prize for a randomly selected alumni donor.
