The University of California, Berkeley Foundation (UCBF) has been dedicated to supporting UC Berkeley's core endeavors--teaching, research, and public service--since 1948.

For more than a half century, the University of California, Berkeley Foundation (UCBF) has supported and advanced the mission of the University of California, Berkeley by encouraging private philanthropy. The Foundation is the most important volunteer body affiliated with the campus and serves as the University's primary vehicle for enlisting fundraising volunteers from the private sector. The Foundation ensures that there is a long-term commitment to the campus fundraising program. Private support is critical to the future of Cal as full state support is unlikely to return. Private gifts are now necessary to provide for core programs, to build new buildings, to create new programs, and to carry the legacy of Cal into the next century. The Foundation is governed by a Board of Trustees composed of professional, business, and philanthropic leaders dedicated to promoting the University's pursuits of teaching, research, and public service. The Board of Trustees' primary mission is to assist the University in securing gifts, trusts, and bequests to nourish programs throughout the campus. Since its formation, the Board has been an instrumental force in driving the dynamic growth in private giving to Berkeley. Through a variety of committees and task forces, the Board provides support and advice to a broad spectrum of fundraising programs and activities. It also manages the Foundation's endowment funds and oversees the Foundation's trusts. Source:
