Supporting Arts and Humanities

The Humanities and Fine Arts are the foundation of a liberal arts education. Focusing on cultural, artistic, and intellectual traditions throughout the world, UC SANTA BARBARA’s Division of Humanities and Fine Arts prepares students for a wide variety of careers while providing them with the knowledge and skills of critical thinking, communication, and expression that will allow them to participate in society as informed and engaged citizens. Internationally-recognized scholars and artists teach undergraduate and graduate students and advance their fields with original research, publications, and creative activity that both preserve our traditions and map new fields of study. Many visionary donors have supported this dedicated and innovative work.

A wide range of giving opportunities is available within UC SANTA BARBARA’s dynamic arts and humanities community for those friends, community members, and alumni who wish to be a vital part of the university’s future. The Division’s major interdisciplinary initiatives will strengthen teaching, research, and public service across several departments and benefit a large number of students. The Office of Development can provide prospective donors with information about supporting the academic areas that most engage them.

UC SANTA BARBARA gratefully accepts gifts of a variety of types of assets, including appreciated securities, cash, and property. Some gift plans feature current tax benefits, income to you, and other welcome advantages for you and the university.

We are grateful for your support and interest.
