The President’s Circle
BCC is launching a new initiative to help sustain the College in an era of economic challenge. Your gift of $1,000 or more will help support the signature programs highly prized by our students, faculty and the Berkeley community.
Your investment makes you a partner in the excellence that Berkeley City College strives for year round. Charter members giving $1,000 and above will be recognized and honored throughout the year and receive invitations to special events.
Your gift helps fund:
Teaching Assistants, enabling students learn at their own pace, especially in large classes.
$1,000 funds a teaching assistant for one semester.
Smaller Classes, allowing for student-focused instruction.
$4,500 pays for splitting a class of 40 students into two classes of 20 each.
True Color Projectors, to bring Multimedia Arts classrooms up to speed.
$3,000 allows us to purchase one, toward our total need for five ($15,000).
Essential Supplies, to enhance our programs College-wide.
$3,000 provides a year of ink for large digital printers.
