1969 students

Class of 1969 50th Reunion

Come Back. Give Back.

Just as others helped us during our days at our campus by the sea, our gifts will help ensure the most promising students will always have an opportunity at UC Santa Barbara. UCSB has provided us with many wonderful experiences both inside and outside the classroom; experiences that helped shape our lives.

There are two ways to make an impact: 

1. The Class of 1969 50th Reunion Scholarship Fund

Our class has been incredibly active in making the world a better place. The Class of 1969 50th Reunion Scholarship Fund seeks to invest in current student leaders who are making a difference at UCSB or in the community as we did in the late 1960's.


2. UCSB Academic Departments, Programs, and Student Life

Give to the area of UCSB that you feel most passionate about.

Our alma mater is world class. With 25,000 today, UCSB has extraordinary needs in all academic, research and student life areas. Choose an area you want to support, perhaps one you already do or inspired you as a student.

Double Your Impact!

Thanks to the Class of 1969’s 50th Reunion Committee, the first $20,000 donated to the scholarship fund will be matched! Our goal is to raise over $50,000 towards the Class of 1969 50th Reunion Scholarship Fund.
