Crowdfunding for Student and Campus Projects

GauchoBoost is an online crowdfunding platform which supports innovative and unique student-led initiatives on campus. These grass root efforts utilize non-traditional funding sources to make a remarkable difference on campus by raising resources for projects lacking traditional funding.

GauchoBoost celebrates the many diverse communities of UC Santa Barbara. We give with excitement, enthusiasm, and encouragement as we celebrate the ingenuity and creativity of our Gauchos.

It’s a simple idea: students, alumni, faculty, staff, family, and friends supporting the innovation, intellect, and passion on campus. GauchoBoost enables individuals to share their message through social media and direct communication to make an immediate impact. Personal connection and meaning encourages new traditions of generosity and supports that values, beliefs, and spirit of UC Santa Barbara.
