Thank you!

October 16, 2015

Thank you for making #SponsorYourSpirit a resounding success.


The numbers:

$17,075 raised

43 donors

113% of our $15K goal

31 days

An average of $550 dollars raised every day


Thanks to you, Cal Spirit is on extremely solid financial footing. We raised the sum necessary to send the spirit groups to the Pac-12 Tournaments and beyond this spring. We have almost hit our annual fundraising goal - and it's only October 16. 

The work of supporting Cal Spirit is never done, but for now let's celebrate an exciting moment for the Cal Spirit community.

Go Bears!

Finish Strong.

October 14, 2015

Less than two days remain to Sponsor Your Spirit.

We aren't satisfied because we met our goal - rather, we are energized to push well beyond $15,000 and profoundly impact the 2015-16 Cal Spirit year. 

Will you pitch in? Share the good word - below are links to the main giving page, our campaign video, and our close the gap video.

Every little bit helps. Go Bears!

Update #5: Join our Family

October 07, 2015

Cal Spirit supporters,

We are rapidly approaching our $15,000 goal. But $15,000 is NOT the finish line for Sponsor Your Spirit. The urgency behind this campaign doesn't end when we hit our goal - every gift beyond $15K still makes an incredible impact on the lives of the young men and women who share the Cal story nationwide. 

Every single extra dollar is a commitment to our school and our community. Please continue to share, post, and forward our message along. Donors to #SponsorYourSpirit do more than support the spirit groups - they become part of the Cal Spirit Family.

Go Bears!

-Cal Spirit


Update #4: Close the Gap

October 06, 2015

Just 9 days remaining to #SponsorYourSpirit!

Will you help us close the gap? Our project is 81% funded due to the effort of supporters like you. We need to finish strong to fully invest in the young men and women who make Cal tradition come alive. Check out the homepage at and view the new campaign video below. 

Share, post, and forward the good word. We are too close to our goal to let it slip away now.

Go Bears!

Update #3: Happy Homecoming!

October 02, 2015

Sponsor Your Spirit is closing in on our goal - but we still have work to do. It's an exciting time to be a Cal fan and a member of the Cal Spirit family. Help us continue to do what we love - donate, share, and post about #SponsorYourSpirit today.

For those of you joining us on campus for Homecoming and Parents Weekend, welcome and enjoy! For those of you unable to make it, catch Saturday's Homecoming game vs. Washington State at 1:00 p.m. PT on Pac-12 Networks. Your 4-0 Golden Bears look to move to 5-0 for the first time in eight years - plus you can catch Cal Spirit on national television!

Thank you again for your continued support. 

Go Bears!

Update #2 - Austin is Bear Territory

September 21, 2015

After a heart-stopping win in Austin, Cal Football returns home undefeated and in first place in the Pac-12 north.

Cal Spirit was there - representing our University on national television during one of the biggest wins in recent memory.

Help Cal Spirit continue to travel this season. Share #SponsorYourSpirit with friends and family - on Facebook, Twitter, Email, or in person. We have incredible momentum, but cannot stop now! 

Sponsor Your Spirit is Cal Spirit's main fundraising initiative this year. Let's make it count.

Go Bears!

Update #1 - two days in!

September 16, 2015

Hey Cal fans!

We are two days into #SponsorYourSpirit and are very excited about the progress we have already made. This isn't just about giving - it's about sharing Cal Spirit's importance to Cal traditions and the game day atmosphere, whether online, through social media, or face-to-face.

We thank you for your support and hope you spread the word. Go Bears!

-Cal Spirit
