Help Berkeley Law make a big impact on the big day by helping us win prize money offered by main campus. Help boost our performance in the contests with big awards for our overall performance:
- Big Slice — dollar challenge (Last year we came in 6th—This year, Haas & Engineering are going down!)
- Big Bang — participation challenge (Every gift to the law school in any amount counts!)
Then there are hourly contests throughout the day. Some are based on giving during that period, others are awarded based on social media participation.
We encourage your participation in the following contests:
- Wednesday, March 7 9pm – Thursday, March 8 9pm:
- Tweet something original that fills in the blank “#BerkeleyLaw deserves #CalBigGive $$ because ______________.”
- What’s your favorite Berkeley Moment? Post it on Twitter or Instagram — most stirring post all day wins! Include #BerkeleyLaw AND #CalBigGive hashtags.
- Thursday, March 8 5-6am PST: International alumni giving drive.
- Thursday, March 8 from 8-10am: Tweet or post to Instagram a child or pet promoting Cal and/or Berkeley Law. Include #BerkeleyLaw AND #CalBigGive hashtags. The most creative post wins.
- Thursday, March 8 from 10am–12pm: Faculty & Staff giving drive.
- Thursday, March 8 from 11am–2pm: Be the 50th selfie on Twitter or Instagram promoting Big Give and taken on campus. Include #BerkeleyLaw AND #CalBigGive hashtags.
- Thursday, March 8 from 12–1pm: Young alumni (Classes of 2007-2017) giving drive (Don’t forget: young alum gifts are MATCHED 2:1!)
- Thursday, March 8 from 3-4pm: Grad student (that’s you JD, LLM, JSD, & JSP students) giving drive.
