UC Berkeley is hosting a big online fundraising event for 24 hours starting at 9 pm on Nov. 19th and ending at 9 pm on Nov. 20th. Big Give will give the Cal community the chance to come together to support their favorite schools and programs on campus, as well as help them win prize money.
CRG is a small unit, but we get a lot accomplished on limited funds. So we ask CRG supporters and all who value critical research in race and gender to donate to CRG during the Big Give because...
Giving to CRG gives you the BIGGEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK AT BERKELEY!
Donations will help grow CRG's newly established endowment for graduate student research grants, supporting student research on race & gender for years to come! Research grants provide much needed funding to students who are developing emerging research projects, engaged community partnerships, and creative projects of local and international scope and across disciplines and topic areas.
We are thrilled that the endowment has been established, but we are working for a Big Boost to its returns! We’ve been told by students again and again how incredibly important this grant is, certainly in terms of helping to cover research expenses, but also in affirming their work in race and gender research and analysis. Your donation to CRG will help cultivate this endowment from the ground up, making a Big Difference to student intellectual and creative innovation.
CRG’s Big Give donation website is: give.berkeley.edu/crg
Please spread the word! Don't forget: the Big Give takes place from 9 pm on Nov. 19th and ends at 9 pm on Nov 20th.
