On behalf of all of the student members of the Berkeley Forum, a massive thank you to all of those who donated. With your help, we were able to SURPASS our goal to raise $5,682! That’s $1,682 over our initial goal of $4,000! Your donations will directly support our organization and its mission to provide a wide range of free and accessible events in the Berkeley community. The money we raised will allow our organization to keep growing at the incredible pace that we have been since our founding in 2012.
Specifically, your donations will help us fund more out of state and international speakers. Furthermore, we will establish our presence in unprecedented venues as well as create a high school outreach program to engage with wider audiences.
We will be able to not only increase the number and quality of our debates and panels, but also strive to continue engaging our community in discussions featuring a wide array of perspectives. Your incredible support will allow us to energetically pursue our mission of furthering Cal’s history and tradition as a place of free speech and intellectual dialogue. More importantly, our crowdfunding success will keep our events completely free and accessible for all UC Berkeley students, staff, and faculty and community members.
Thank you so much again to all our donors on behalf of the Forum staff. Because of your efforts and support, the Berkeley Forum will be able to continue to grow and bring even more incredible guests to campus!
