You Make it Possible
The guiding philosophy of Cal Athletics is to provide our 850 scholar-athletes with a well-rounded and all-encompassing opportunity for development.
As educational costs rise, Bear Backers make it possible for all 850 scholar-athletes to excel — academically, athletically, personally and professionally — at the best public university in the world.
As a Bear Backer, you are an investor in the future of Cal Athletics and the future of each one of these exceptional student-leaders who represent the Golden Bears. Because of you, they train in world-class facilities, are led by extraordinary coaches and receive an unparalleled academic experience at the University of California, Berkeley. Because of you, these incredible young people will graduate well-prepared to change the world.
