Give to ERG

Give Big to ERG on Thursday, March 11 during UC Berkeley’s annual Big Give fundraiser! Big Give is UC Berkeley’s annual fundraising blitz—24 hours when we celebrate all of the moments that make Berkeley such a big deal by sharing the love on social media, supporting all of our favorite schools and programs, and competing in a wide variety of contests. During Big Give, thousands of alumni, students, parents, faculty, staff, and friends seize the moment to impact Cal for years to come.

General gifts to ERG are added to the Energy and Resources Group Annual Discretionary Fund. This fund was established to provide program support to respond to ERG’s most urgent needs and to build on the excellence of our program. Make a secure, single credit card gift to ERG online or set up a sustaining, recurring gift.

ERG has a 50 year history of outstanding research, teaching, policy advice and scholar-activism. Our diverse and creative projects are a result of ERG’s unique collaborative culture. These often need innovative and unconventional approaches — in many cases in areas where traditional funding agencies are not yet providing support. ERG has researched and acted on:

  • environmental toxics
  • global change ecology
  • power systems analysis
  • renewable energy deployment
  • sustainable urban planning
  • environmental and climate justice
  • biofuels and land use change
  • financial tools for low-carbon economies
  • the economic and “social cost” of carbon
  • safe water and sanitation in the developing world

We thank you for your support to further ERG’s fundamental as well as policy-relevant research, research that also provides important funding and academic opportunities for graduate students.
