Class of 12

Dear Fellow Golden Bears,                                                            

Do you remember lounging on Memorial Glade, being serenaded by the Campanile? And how can we forget the naked run? If you are like me, the Berkeley nostalgia runs deep. 
Like so many fellow bears, I am thankful for the opportunities Cal gave me. Before freshman year, the term ‘business owner’ meant very little to me. I never thought it would be possible to start my own company. However, the entrepreneurship class I took my sophomore year and the student groups I joined, like ASUC, gave me the skills and confidence to build multiple companies while in college.

Our Cal experience meant so much to us. In light of today’s uncertain climate for public education, I’ve decided to make a gift of $25,000 in the form of a Challenge Match. But I need your help! 
The Class of 2012 5th Reunion Committee is raising $100,000 to keep Cal the #1 public university in the nation. For every 100 donors that we engage at any level, $5,000 of my gift will be “unlocked” and allocated towards our reunion goal. 
The class of 2011 raised $74,699. With this gift of $25,000, we can set a new all-time record! You can make your gift at this site or at give.berkeley.edu. This will be our legacy and the need has truly never been greater. Regardless of the amount you give, take a step up today to pay it forward for current and future Cal students. 

I hope to see you at Cal Reunion Weekend on October 20-22!

Go Bears!
