The UC Berkeley Chicano Latino Alumni Association (CLAA) has evolved into a professional alumni association. It is imperative that now, more than ever, we collectively invest in our community, but more importantly, in our Cal Latinx students. Although we have made some progress, there are many of our students still experiencing food and housing insecurities. We can change that, we can make a difference, we can invest to build equity and strengthen our comunidad. In an effort to build and sustain a strong organization, we have incorporated a membership fee/investment structure.
Membership is just one way to help us serve you, our alum, and our students. The fee will go to support student scholarships and programming, alumni networking and workforce development, and in building capacity at CLAA and it’s chapters. In addition, you have the option to invest a monthly contribution to CLAA to continue building equity. A monthly contribution can equate to the same cost of 2-3 coffees per month, however, to our students, it can mean the difference between skipping one meal or not, or having to work more or less.
Are you ready to invest and pay it forward?
We too believe in giving back, so we are continually forming partnerships with merchants and service providers to offer you discounts. Some of those member discounts/services currently include:
More partnerships are taking place and we will update the list as we confirm. If you know of a company or service you would like us to list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
