The Annual Fund also helps support the smaller class sizes necessary to develop artistic and expressive skills in young artists and thinkers.

Income generated from the fund helps to underwrite dance program expenses above and beyond the annual dance budget.The endowment was established to honor David Wood and the dedication with which he and Marni Thomas Wood worked to establish the dance program here at UC Berkeley.
