Dear Berkeley Community,
As a result of the email message that I sent last week, I am thrilled with the outpouring of offers from our Berkeley Community to become involved with our Berkeley Cares fundraising efforts for Japan. In response to your passionate concern and offers to help, I would like to announce that Berkeley College will be matching the monies raised by our community for the Japan relief efforts up to $10,000.
The donations will be distributed to four relief organizations:
The American Red Cross - Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami Relief
Japan Society's Earthquake Relief Fund
New York City's Mayor's Fund - Japan Earthquake Tsunami Fund
Save the Children - Japan Earthquake Tsunami Relief
To participate in this matching program, please donate cash or write a check payable to Berkeley College and indicate on the bottom which organization you have selected. The Office of Student Development and Campus Life at each location will be responsible for the collection of donations.

To ensure that we act quickly and respond to the needs of the nation of Japan, the last day of the matching campaign will be April 29, 2011. Our goal is to reach the $10,000 fundraising mark so that the amount will be fully matched by Berkeley College.
