2016 Berkeley Lab SHARES Campaign

Welcome to 2016 Berkeley Lab SHARES!

NOTE: The deadline to submit paperwork to donate by monthly payroll deduction was November 14.  You can still give directly to the Berkeley Lab Foundation or to any of the charities listed in the donor guide by visiting their websites to make an on-line or mail-in donation.

This website is designed to ensure that every employee can find an organization to support with a tax-deductible contribution. Payroll contributions are not pre-tax deductions and the Lab does not offer to match donations.

This year, we have added the Berkeley Lab Foundation to the choices included in category of Local Independent Charities.  The Berkeley Lab Foundation was established as a separate 501(c)3 by the University of California in 2013 to give interested participants a way to support the lab’s scientific activity. Gifts to Berkeley Lab Foundation will be used to support Lawrence Diversity Fellowships.  These fellowships provide funding to attract outstanding postdocs from historically underrepresented groups to Berkeley Lab.  Work by postdocs results in significant scientific advances and knowledge that has real-world applications.  Trailblazing ideas they pursue on their own can provide the foundation for major breakthroughs in the years ahead. Your support for Lawrence Diversity Fellows will have an enormous and valuable impact on the lab.
Browse participating  charities by viewing the 2016 Berkeley Lab Shares donor guide. The donor guide is a 20 page document that lists over 800 participating charities. (Allow a few seconds for the document to load.)  To facilitate your search, you can also use the Charity Federations menu on the right to visit the pages dedicated to each of the five federations featured in the donor guide. Read below about how to add any 501(c)3 organization to your payroll deductions.
