Cal Band Budget: Facts and Figures

Our funding comes from a variety of sources including the University, endowment income, fundraising, performance donations, and Athletics. Over 70 percent of our funding comes from private donations and endowment income.

$50,000 New Donor Matching Challenge

This is the LAST year for the University to match gifts from new donors up to $50,000. If you have never given to the Cal Band, please consider a gift that will help ensure our future financial stability. The Executive Committee would welcome the opportunity to speak with any of you about this fundraising campaign. You are welcome to come to campus and meet with us or perhaps spend the morning in Memorial Stadium prior to any home football game to observe our rehearsal and meet the members of the band. You can reach any of our Executive Committee officers by visiting our Contact Us page.
