Crowdfunding Expands Health Opportunity Fund for UC Berkeley Students

December 1, 2023

In November 2023, University Health Services (UHS) participated in the UC Berkeley Crowdfunding program. Through Berkeley Crowdfunding, UHS was able to raise funds for the Health Opportunity Fund (HOF), a popular program among students that provides funds for qualifying students in need.

After a month-long campaign, UHS raised a total of $5,670 from 38 donors, which is a total of 189% of the initial $3,000 goal. With these funds, 28 additional HOF-qualifying students will each be able to access $200 to help offset the cost of services at UHS.

UHS would like to thank everyone who participated in this campaign. Through the campaign, we offered donation “perks”. One of the perks was having the name displayed on our website. Below are the donors who chose to have their names displayed on our website:

  • Leah Carroll
  • Andrea and Jeff Bates
  • Ryan Lawrence
  • Katherine Schiff-Welsh
  • Cathy Highiet
  • Stefanie M Kalem
  • Monica Reesor
  • Kate O'Neill
  • Lisa Parent
  • Marilynn Foree
  • Sarah Stevenson
  • Katherine Madrigal

The generosity of all of our donors made this project a success. Thank you.
