Seasons Greetings! Read the latest message from I-House Executive Director Shaun Carver.
Dear I-House Alumni and Friends,
As we make the transition to 2021, we look towards our future with hope and intention. When we made the difficult decision to close I-House earlier this year, we understood that it was unprecedented but necessary to ensure our top priority—the safety of our I-House community. Yet throughout the closure, we remain focused on continuing to advance our mission through our programs and services, all while preparing for our reopening in the year to come. I-House is most grateful to all who have supported us through this challenging time.
If you would like to make a 2020 gift and have not yet had the opportunity to do so, it’s not too late! Please consider donating now via our new fundraising site ihouse.berkeley.edu/donate, or by visiting the online version of our Annual Appeal.
With your support, I-House continues to foster a more just and peaceful world through intercultural understanding and mutual respect.
We are tirelessly working towards the day when we can safely welcome our vibrant community back to the House and know that we could not do what we do without the support of friends and alumni like you. Best wishes for health, peace, and prosperity in the New Year!
Shaun R. Carver
International House, UC Berkeley
