CAN Big Give

A second item from one of our fellow Canadian organizations in the Bay Area.


Canadian Studies Big Give
Dear Friends of Canadian Studies
Greetings from Canadian Studies! We are writing with some exciting news. You may remember the late Thomas Garden Barnes, founder of the Canadian Studies Program at Berkeley. The Barnes Family has made a generous donation in support of Canadian Studies, at the Northwest Territories Diamond Level in the Berkeley Maple Leaf Society.
What is the Berkeley Maple Leaf Society, you may be wondering? The members of the Berkeley Maple Leaf Society are the loyal supporters of Canadian Studies who make research and teaching on Canada at Cal possible. You can learn more about the Maple Leaf Society on our brand new redesigned website, at https://canada.berkeley.edu/maple-leaf-society
The annual Cal Big Give is TODAY, March 14, 2019. Our goal is to match the Barnes family’s generosity, and double their Northwest Territories Diamond-level gift. Will you join us in this effort? You can make your contribution securely online anytime between now and at 9:00 PM Pacific at this link https://give.berkeley.edu/egiving/index.cfm?fund=FU0713000 and your gift will be credited towards Canadian Studies’ Big Give Total. This allows Canadian Studies to compete for matching funds from campus, during the Big Give.
Your support helps keep Canadian Studies a vibrant part of intellectual life at Berkeley. We hope you will join us in our goal of matching the Barnes family gift during the 2019 Big Give. Thank you for your support. We could not do it without you.
Sincerely,
Irene Bloemraad, PhD
