Big Give 2018
Big Give - Seize the Moment


Berkeley is made up of so many moments, from your acceptance letter to graduation day, free public lectures by global artists to discounted tickets for powerful performances - and we want to continue being a part of them.

As UC Berkeley approaches its 150th anniversary, we invite you to make moments like these possible during Big Give, our annual online fundraising event. Help us support Berkeley's creative campus dedicated to providing arts access to students, faculty, alumni, and the greater Berkeley community.

Visit today to tell us about your big Berkeley moment as it relates to the creative campus using #BerkeleyArtsDesign and #CalBigGive! Then, come back MARCH 8 to join thousands in helping us make this year's Big Give truly momentous by supporting Arts + Design at Berkeley.



Help Arts + Design win prize money through contests offered by main campus, including the big awards for our overall performance:

> Big Slice: overall dollar challenge

> Big Bang: overall participation challenge

There are also hourly contests throughout the day (March 8), based on giving during that period or social media participation! Here are a couple of them:
