Take a Moment to Celebrate: Today is Big Give!

Today is the day! It's Big Give — the campus' annual fundraising campaign — 24 hours when the entire UC Berkeley community comes together to support their favorite departments and programs and celebrate the Berkeley moments that bring light to our lives.

This year we are focusing on making moments for MCB students through our student-focused fundraising initiatives: Promoting Inclusivity, Modernizing Teaching Labs, and Expanding Career Development.

We invite you to take a minute and help make MCB moments that will benefit our students. Click the button below to benefit MCB students!
