Berkeley thanks the following "seed" funders who grasped the Berkeley Changemaker vision early on and have been critical in catalyzing its launch:

I was excited about learning about the legacy of Berkeley Changemakers. Before...I thought being a changemaker was an independent act. Now, I realize that my work as a changmaker [stet] is an active continuation of "good" throughout Berkeley campus and the world. Not only will I be supplied with tools from this course, but I can learn from those before me. I personally am more excited to be a part of something greater than me. Changemaking is a movement and a movement flourishes with people.
