Investing in the Retirement Center's Future
Though UCBRC gets its core funds from the campus, those funds do not fully support our activities. In 1997 we established an endowment to ensure our long-term continuation and an annual campaign to meet immediate programmatic needs. Donations to our annual fund directly supports existing programs.
Almost 1000 faculty and staff from the UCB campus alone and more from LBNL and UCOP, are expected to enter the retirement pool in the next three years, so demands for the services the Center provides are similarly expected to increase. Focusing on increasing the endowment in the next several years will help provided funding security for the Center - as a hedge against declining state allocations. and as one means of meeting new demands.
