2) The Friends of the Center for Latino Policy Research

$1,000 CLPR Friend
Your generous gift supports all of the Center’s work:  the speakers, the policy briefs, the working groups, and the working papers.  Your gift would entitle you to an opportunity to meet with the speakers during lunch and you would be invited to   attend the working groups events.  You also will be given access to the new Policy Briefs and Published Reports before they become publicly available.

$5,000 Policy Briefs
Your gift supports the publication and dissemination of our Policy Briefs series, which began in 1989.  These briefs cogently outline an important policy issue and provide solutions for policy makers, practitioners, and policy advocates. These briefs are published on eScholarship and also on CLPR’s website.

$15,000 Summer Academic Support
Your contribution will support two undergraduate student Policy Interns. In partnership with our collaborating organizations, Policy Interns will be given mentored, intensive, practical opportunities to become a part of a community organization. Interns will learn to work with the media, write reports/press releases, testify at key policy hearings, and participate in key meetings with top government officials, corporate CEOs, and political leaders.

Even as we strategically raise endowed funds through The Campaign for Berkeley to ensure this work in perpetuity, we recognize the urgent need for current-use funding. Gifts of any amount can be made online at (click on “Donate” button above) or with a check made payable to the Regents of the University of California with CLPR in the memo line.
