Advancement Training and Outreach

Advancement Training and Outreach engages and educates UC Berkeley’s advancement community to foster collaborative, coordinated fundraising and alumni relations. We endeavor to capture and share institutional knowledge and industry best practices around our common mission to advance the University. We offer training classes and promote networking events for professional development. We also communicate advancement initiatives and policies and link campuswide fundraisers through the Eureka intranet, the advancement newsletter, and other channels.

What We Do

The Advancement Training and Outreach team supports the growth and effectiveness of fundraising at UC Berkeley by:
  • Providing wide-ranging and easy-to-find information about our organization and job-related tasks on the Eureka advancement intranet
  • Building knowledge and enhancing soft skills in classes taught by Berkeley and industry professionals
  • Sharing news and success stories via the Berkeley Advancement newsletter
