The memorial bench.
The bench is to be placed in the tranquil, freshly landscaped gardens of the Women’s Faculty Club, of which Joe was a longstanding member. The minimum endowment necessary to name a bench is $4,000, and we hope that, should circumstances permit, you’ll consider making a contribution toward our goal. If so, there are two easy ways to do this. (1) By credit card: go to In the search bar, type “Women’s Faculty Club” (no “The”). A page will come up, leaving a space for you to stipulate the amount of your contribution , and the indication that it will be going to the Next Century Campaign. This is correct. Click “continue.” At this point, you will fill in all your relevant information. In item #4, indicate that your gift is earmarked for the Joe Duggan memorial bench. (2) By check: Make checks payable to the UC Berkeley Foundation. Very important: write Fund # FH0202 and Women’s faculty club and Duggan Memorial on the check. Send to: UC Berkeley Memorial Foundation, 2080 Addison Street, Suite 4200, Berkeley CA 94720.
