We are proud to announce an inspiring challenge gift. Alums Heather Podesta ‘93, and Peter Sidebottom ’85, have each pledged to match Gardner Fellow alum contributions up to $75,000 over the next five years. That is, if in those 5 years, Gardner Fellowship alums contribute $150,000, Heather and Peter will donate $150,000, raising a total of $300,000. And if 95% of alums donate, Heather and Peter will add an additional $30,000 to their pledge. We are grateful to Heather and Peter for making such a significant gift.
All donations from this drive will be donated to the UC Berkeley John Gardner Fellowship Program, which has faced an ongoing challenge of funding its three fellows. Please help stave off the crisis mode of fundraising at UC Berkeley by helping to fund the next generation of public service leaders.
