Office of Development

The Office of Development is comprised of professionals committed to providing the best philanthropic experience for our donors. We are true investment stewards, advancing the University’s mission through community outreach and relationship-building with individuals, corporations, and foundations.

Our gift officers are skilled at identifying donors’ interests and possess a wide breadth of knowledge of UC Santa Barbara. What results is a meaningful relationship whereby donors’ passions are matched with areas of need on campus. These relationships support UC Santa Barbara and advance our donors' philanthropic aims.

The UC Santa Barbara Development Office has received several awards for outstanding performance in fundraising, including four Educational Fundraising Awards in the last five years granted by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE). The Development team promotes the university, fosters support, and provides excellent service for UC Santa Barbara donors.

If you are interested in making a difference at UC Santa Barbara, please contact one of our gift officers listed under Key Contacts. They will guide you and answer all questions to ensure your investment achieves the desired and maximum impact.
