Last year's New Alumni Challenge was a tremendous success, more than 900 young alums and students gave $224,000 and received $210,000 in matching gifts for a total of $434,000 for Haas! A huge THANK YOU to our UC Berkeley Foundation Board Trustees, and to our loyal and generous students and recent graduates who invested back in Haas last year-once again, making Haas graduates the top contributors to the New Alumni Challenge.


Let's rock the New Alumni Challenge match again.

Who's eligible?
All alums - undergraduate and graduate - from the Classes of 2008 to 2012, plus all current undergraduate and graduate students who graduate in spring 2013 are eligible.

What is matched?
Gifts made after July 1, 2012, (up to $1,000 per donor) to any UC Berkeley school, college, or program. Donors who make any combination of gifts totaling $500 or more will become members of The Charter Hill Society.

How do I join the Haas Leadership Society?
Alumni who graduated within the past five years are eligible to join the Haas Leadership Society at the reduced gift level of $250 annually for undergraduate and $500 for graduate degree holders.

What if I make more than one gift?
Because the $1,000 limit is per-donor, not per-gift, you can make as many gifts as you like. Amounts above the $1,000 donor cap will not be eligible for the matching funds.

How long does the challenge last?
Until June 30, 2013 or as long as funds remain - whichever comes first..

I made a New Alumni Challenge gift last year. Am I still eligible?
Gifts from alums from the Classes of 2008 to 2012, plus all current undergraduate and graduate students who graduate in spring 2013 are eligible. Gifts from alumni who graduated in 2007 no longer qualify for the challenge match, but we hope they will still continue to support their alma mater!
