We at UC Santa Barbara are continually awed by the generosity exhibited by our alumni, parents and friends. Over the years, generations of supporters have demonstrated their altruism in a variety of ways—by offering financial resources, and by devoting time and attention to this cherished institution.
Now with decades of development, UC Santa Barbara’s community of supporters has grown. We are witnessing the cumulative impact made by our donors: a collective, powerful force that sustains UC Santa Barbara’s notoriety and propels us into higher levels of achievement.
Indeed, we believe that every contribution counts—from a young alumna’s first $25 gift to an investor’s $65M commitment. These resources help to support an array of experiences at our university, maintaining the level of excellence for which UC Santa Barbara is known. Perhaps it means that your gift supplies a much-needed textbook for an undergraduate student; perhaps your investment allows faculty to collaborate in a cutting-edge research facility; or perhaps your volunteered time enables administrators to make informed decisions. Whatever your gift may be, it is most certainly making a difference.
Supporting UC Santa Barbara means that you feel passionately about our institution and believe in its bright future. It means that your impact isn’t just financial; it’s the action that inspires all of us to do our part.
