$33,225 from our Supporters: Thank You

May 11, 2016

It’s been 7 days since our locker room fundraiser has come to an end, yet we are still in shock. To all that have donated, you have our most sincere gratitude. You helped us raise over $33,000! We are incredibly fortunate for the Cal community; in Berkeley and beyond.

We set out to secure the resources for 17 lockers, 15 benches, and a locker room renovation. Due to the overwhelming kindness of supporters like you, we've doubled our goal, reached 125 donors, and raised $30,000. Thank you to those who helped our campaign! It’s time to march on to Asia! Go Bears!

125 Years, 125 Donors!

April 22, 2016

Thanks to donors like you, we have raised the most amount of money in UC Berkeley crowdfunding history!

Not only did we reach our goal, but we also reached our stretch goal of $25,000.  With 12 days left for our campaign, our next goal is to have a total of 125 donors as another way of celebrating the 125th year of the Cal Band!  You can continue helping us reach our goal by sharing our link on Facebook, Twitter, and to all your friends!

Because of your donation, we are #1!


A New Goal: 20 More Days, 20 More Lockers!

April 13, 2016

We reached our fundraising goal of $15,000 in only 8 days! We are amazed by the overwhelming support we have received. Because of you, we are able to create a new goal of $25,000. With this extra help, we will be able to finance an additional 20 lockers. 

If you feel inclined to donate again to help us reach this new goal, you will receive additional perks! 

Thank you again for your continued support of our organization,

-Alyssa, Ben and Kasey
