How We're Funded

Cal Performances generates 33% of our annual budget through ticket sales and we receive 5% net support from the University of California, Berkeley. Your support is crucial in bridging the gap!

Contributions to the Annual Fund create a critical foundation of support for all of our artistic, education, and community programing. Help us share the power of the performing arts with more than 150,000 people this year by giving today. Thank you!
