Big Thanks


Thank you so much for helping International House “seize the moment” during Big Give on March 14, 2019!

We blew right past our ambitious goal of 150 gifts and ended the day with 175 gifts, thus, we received the $3,000 matching challenge funds from our I-House Big Match donors.

In addition, I-House won a $4,000 campus prize in the Raising the Bar challenge because of the impressive 168% increase over last year’s 104 gifts.

More details will follow as the final gifts are tallied, but we wanted to take a moment to share the great news. We were deeply moved by the stories, videos, and photos that were shared on our social media, and of course, for the thoughtful donations we received throughout the day. A few are highlighted below:

A World Without Lines: I-House UC Berkeley, by Morgan Randall

As many of you know, Big Give was on Pi day (3.14) this year. Leave it to a Mathmatics major to create the perfect video for the occasion. Morgan Randall (IH 2014-16) is known for drawing residents' portraits on their doorway message boards during his time at I-House. In this animated video, Morgan narrates how his experience “has come full circle” and why he supports I-House during Big Give.


The I-House Connection by Loyalty Traster-Lee and Juan Antonio Perez

More than 35 current residents collaborated on this video highlighting the friendship, discovery, conversation, and magic that happen here every day. It's an interpretation of a familiar song.


Helping I-House is as Easy as Pie!

Give the videos a "Thumbs Up" and share with your networks.


Again, thank you for supporting I-House and giving the opportunity for others to experience the magic by keeping the dream alive.
