Aaron Rodgers makes ‘seven-figure gift’ to alma mater Cal
Aaron Rodgers has given a huge donation to Cal’s football program.
According to the school, the Packers quarterback made a “seven-figure gift,” which will be used to renovate the football locker room and start the Aaron Rodgers Football Scholarship.
“I’m pleased and proud to make this gift to support Cal football,” Rodgers said. “My years at Cal were among the best years of my life. My time in Berkeley created lasting, unforgettable memories. Coach (Justin) Wilcox was on the coaching staff when I was a Bear, and I am excited about the team’s direction with Justin pointing the way. He is a tremendous football coach and an even better role model for his players. I hope that my contribution can help him move this program forward.”
The locker room will be renovated this summer and should be completed in time for the start of the 2019 season. The school said it will be renamed the Aaron Rodgers Team Locker Room.
