Volunteer Awards: Nominations Open until July 2

Do you know someone who rallied classmates to give to Berkeley during a reunion year? Someone who founded an annual social event in his or her town to engage local alumni? Or perhaps you have worked with a volunteer group that raised money for scholarships?

A joint presentation by the UC Berkeley Foundation and the Cal Alumni Association, the Volunteer Awards honor the people who give generously of their time and expertise to serve the Berkeley community. Nominate someone today! The deadline for nominations is July 2, 2021.
