Achievement Awards

The Berkeley community is filled with people pushing the edges of what’s possible. Do you know a business leader whose achievements have shaped an entire industry and benefited humankind? Or do you know an alum whose dedication to Berkeley has had a profound and lasting impact on students and faculty? Maybe you know of a young alum with achievements that are already showing great promise for their fields or communities. Nominate someone for an Achievement Award (listed below), co-sponsored by the UC Berkeley Foundation and the Cal Alumni Association.

Berkeley Charter Gala has been postponed due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19. The 2020 recipients will be formally presented with their awards at Berkeley Charter Gala on October 8, 2020. The celebration includes a welcome reception and the awards ceremony followed by a sit-down dinner. The Achievement Awards celebrate forward-thinking philanthropists and activists for social change, gifted faculty, and dedicated and promising alums. Check back in late August for more information on the gala!
