I-House 2020 Annual Appeal Now Underway

Greetings from Berkeley!  I’m pleased to share a message from our Director of Philanthropy, Bill Howley.

Bill Howley, I-House Director of Philanthropy

Dear I-House Alumni and Friends,

A heartfelt thanks to our alumni and supporters who have already provided financial contributions this fiscal year, including during the recent “Giving Tuesday.”  If you have not yet had an opportunity, we hope that you will consider supporting I-House and will make a gift now to help future residents have this singular opportunity to enjoy such a life-changing experience.

I-House relies on philanthropic support to provide financial aid, to preserve and to protect our historic home, and to allow for innovations in programming to prepare the next generation of leaders. This support is vital in fulfilling our mission as we face a basic reality: room and board fees do not cover fundamental expenses.  Generous support from Alumni and Friends makes up this difference.  During these turbulent times, and especially during the temporary closure of I-House due to public health and safety concerns, we need your support to prepare for our reopening.  To learn more, please visit our Annual Appeal page.

Thank you for cherishing your I-House memories and investing in the future!


Bill Howley
I-House Director of Philanthropy

Thanks for your support!

P.S. Please join our new global networking platform if you haven’t already at ihberkeleyconnect.org and share this message with your I-House friends!  You may also wish to take a look at our virtual donor wall at ihouse.berkeley.edu/donate.
