Support of our Athletes

   

The distinguished record of Cal Aquatics, however secure it may seem today, must not be taken for granted. The vast majority of the operating budget for the swimming and water polo programs comes from the athletic department. Cal, along with the state of California, will surely face severe budgetary constraints for the foreseeable future. For this reason, we can no longer rely on the University to provide adequate funding to preserve these programs' traditions of excellence.

In response to today's austere financial climate, Friends of Cal Aquatics solicits annual and special gifts to help provide the scholarships, operational funds, equipment, and facilities necessary for producing world-class aquatics teams. If Cal is not only to remain a strong competitor in these sports, but also to reach the highest level of achievement, we must rely on the full support and generous investment of alumni, friends, and families, as well as companies, foundations, and other organizations.

By leveraging the commitment of our University family — and working closely with the Friends of Cal Aquatics support organization — Cal Aquatics can be even more successful and contribute even more to Berkeley and our student-athletes. Our vision is for “a new golden era” of higher achievement for our swimming and water polo programs, of greater rewards for those who participate in them, and of a more satisfying and enduring experience for Cal Aquatics fans.

There are four major goals we must accomplish if we are to make this new era a reality. We must:

  • Strengthen endowments to sustain and enhance Cal Aquatics’ tradition of excellence;
  • Award our full allotment of NCAA scholarships;
  • Provide facilities commensurate with world-class programs; and
  • Build a stronger sense of community among all those who appreciate Cal Aquatics.

We invite you to begin or renew your membership in Friends of Cal Aquatics. Your participation will allow you to experience the satisfaction of supporting the swimming and water polo teams that do so much for student-athletes, the University, and the entire Cal community. In the process, you will be able to forge bonds and enjoy social occasions with other Cal Aquatics fans like you.
