CRG – The Big Give!

Wednesday, Nov 19, 2014 - Thursday, Nov 20, 2014 | 9:00 pm - 9:00 pm


UC Berkeley is hosting a big online fundraising event called the Big Give for 24 hours starting at 9 pm on Nov. 19th and ending at 9 pm on Nov. 20th. The Big Give will give the Cal community the chance to come together to support their favorite schools and programs on campus, as well as help them win prize money.

The Center for Race Gender is a small unit, but we get a lot accomplished on limited funds. So we ask CRG supporters and all who value critical research in race and gender to donate to CRG during the Big Give because…


Donations will help grow CRG’s newly established endowment to financially support graduate student research on race gender for years to come! Research grants provide much needed funding to students who are developing emerging research projects, engaged community partnerships, and inspired creative projects that expand our understanding of how race and gender impact our lives and the world around us.

We are thrilled that the endowment has been established, but we are working for a Big Boost to its returns! We’ve been told by students again and again how incredibly important this grant is, certainly in terms of helping to cover research expenses, but also in affirming their work in race and gender research and analysis. Your donation to CRG will help cultivate this endowment from the ground up, making a Big Difference to student intellectual and creative innovation.

CRG’s Big Give donation website is:

Please spread the word! Don’t forget: the Big Give takes place from 9 pm on Nov. 19th and ends at 9 pm on Nov 20th.
