Matching Gifts

Help us meet the Chancellor's Challenge for
Arts Education!

Make your gift online today! Great News! If you make a gift to Cal Performances by June 30, 2013, it will be matched one-to-one by a generous challenge grant from UC Berkeley's Chancellor Robert Birgeneau.

This generous Challenge Grant to fund Cal Performances' programs at the intersection of arts and education will double the impact of your support! Your partnership will allow programs and activities like our residencies and master classes with guest artists, the festive Fall Free for All, SchoolTime performances, and the nationally-acclaimed AileyCamp to flourish, enriching and transforming lives with the performing arts.

How does the match work?

Any new or additional gifts will be matched 1:1. If you have already made a gift to Cal Performances this year, your additional gift will be matched and we will thank you with the benefits at the combined level of giving.
