Big Give

We in the Department of Linguistics seek the support of our friends in Berkeley's Big Give on Thursday, November 17. Big Give is an annual online fundraising event that gives all of us in Cal's extended community the opportunity to support our university through gifts to the programs and schools we care about the most. Last year Linguistics raised over $6,000, mostly from small donations. This year, we'd love to raise $10,000 or even more in this one-day fundraising event. Big Give begins at 9 pm (Pacific time) on Wednesday, November 16, and continues through 9 pm on Thursday, November 17. The link for Big Give donations is here.
