GIVE MONTHLY (other amount)

The best way for you to become a member is to make a small automatic contribution every month. (It’s like subscribing to a newspaper in the old days!) It takes less than a minute to set up a monthly donation via PayPal or credit card.



We also appreciate one-time donations of any amount! Choose any amount – from five bucks to five figures. It takes just a moment to give via PayPal or credit card.

Most importantly, you’ll join hundreds of your neighbors in the wonderful Berkeleyside membership community!

Electronic contributions are easiest for us! But if you’d prefer to give via mail, please write a check to Berkeleyside Inc., WeWork, 2120 University Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94704. Please include your email address so we can email you free passes to our Members’ Party!
