Gold Country Cal Alumni Chapter

We welcome all Cal alumni to join us in our community! 

Come build the Cal Bears community with us!

Our Chapter serves Greater Nevada County from our core membership base in Grass Valley, Nevada City, Alta Sierra, and Penn Valley. We provide student outreach to local high school students, award scholarships to highly qualified first year students from our region, provide opportunities to help newly admitted students join the Cal community, and provide social and learning activities for local alumni. We hope you will join us for our fabulous speaker’s dinners, wine and beer tastings, Big Game rally, and other events! We are 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization, tax id #3448628. Our distance from Berkeley has not been a deterrent to a healthy membership base that is still very well connected to the campus and thus really keeps in touch with Cal. Call or email us and join the fun. GO BEARS!!!
