Rogers Family donation story

Rogers family commits $10 million to men’s rowing

The T. Gary and Kathleen Rogers Family Foundation, in partnership with the Friends of Cal Crew — the fundraising and event-organizing arm of Cal men’s rowing — has announced a commitment of $10 million to the program. The family will continue its annual support of the program over the next 10 years and has offered a $5 million matching challenge which will provide a 1:1 match for every new gift or pledge to endowments benefiting Cal men’s crew.

Berkeley’s Growing Light

Berkeley launched Light the Way, a historic effort to raise $6 billion, in February 2020. Two weeks later, COVID-19 shuttered our world — but not your generosity. Thanks to you, we have surpassed our goal.

But the work continues to ignite our excellence. We invite you to explore enduring priorities to add new faculty positions, support the undergraduate discovery experience and graduate fellowships, and invest in places of possibility. Thank you for lighting the way toward Berkeley's brighter future.
