Big Give 2024 is here!

Big Give 3.14.24

Big Give is a university-wide day of giving when we come together as an entire community — alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends — to celebrate all the moments of Berkeley and show support for students, faculty, and research.

Help us have a big impact on the MCB community and reach our ambitious goal of raising $50,000! Your support is vital to the continued success of our department and no gift is too small. Join us this year as we go big to reach our student and postdoc-focused 2024 fundraising goals:


2023-24 Fundraising Initiatives

  • Expand access to research opportunities for MCB undergraduate students. 
    An ongoing priority is to expand the number of research experiences we provide to our undergraduate students. We will continue to develop innovative programing that enables more students to benefit from undertaking mentored research in MCB labs.   
  • Provide community building events to promote wellbeing and inclusivity for all.
    MCB is committed to improving wellbeing and inclusivity by sponsoring community building events. The goal is to bring our community together to make connections that foster diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.   
  • Support professional development opportunities for the MCB community.
    As a department we recognize the importance of preparing our trainees for future success in their careers. We aim to provide professional development opportunities to students and postdocs including training, skill development, career path exploration, and networking events.   

Together, let's give a big boost to making sure all our programs for our MCB community succeed!
