For 150 years, UC Berkeley has been changing the world by making life-altering discoveries and developing the next generation of thought leaders — all originating from small Berkeley moments. On March 14, you can make more of these possible during Big Give. Because what makes Cal special is our commitment to access, excellence and service to the world, and the loyal Cal community (that’s you!) who share those values.

What is Big Give?

Big Give is an annual online giving day that brings the entire UC Berkeley community — alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and friends — together to support schools and programs and help them win prize money. Visit to learn more!

Help Make Rec Sports Accessible to All

During Big Give, the Department of Recreational Sports is asking the campus community to support the Rec Sports Opportunity Fund (RSOF) and help make recreational, fitness and wellness opportunities available to all UC Berkeley students. The Rec Sports Opportunity Fund is a fee waiver program that is focused on lowering barriers to participation for students. The fund allows students to participate in the diverse array of fitness and wellness activities offered through Cal Rec Sports. Students will have the opportunity to apply to the RSOF for a partial or full subsidy to cover the fees needed to participate in programs including but not limited to Intramural Sports, Sport Clubs, Personal Training, Instructional Fitness, and Cal Adventures.

Gifts of any amount have an impact. Help us create more Berkeley moments by giving to the Rec Sports Opportunity Fund on March 14.
