Why I Support Berkeley

To be able to contribute, even a little, to a place like Berkeley is something I never give a second thought to because of all the amazing things the school does for each student and faculty member to help everyone be successful. You don’t have to look far to see the results of the support. Everything, including the furniture in the classrooms, the instruments and music equipment in the orchestra, the band and choir rooms, and the digital side of things—all of it contributes to making each student and teacher successful, as well as making every place on campus comfortable and beautiful. While we have amazing parents who give to Berkeley  in many ways, faculty giving shows how we don’t just see this as a “job.” Together, we can truly help make Berkeley an even more amazing place for our students and ourselves.
