About the class gift
The mission of the 2013 Senior Class Gift Campaign is to promote a philanthropic culture on campus by giving students the opportunity to leave a legacy and provide for future fellow gauchos..

This year the Senior Class Gift will go to the Alumni Association Scholarship Fund and other undergraduate student scholarships.

History of the class gift
Since the early 1990s, UC Santa Barbara’s graduating class has raised money in support of special campus projects or student financial needs. Past gifts have included funds for the AS Food Bank, renovations to the Recreation Center, as well as various scholarship funds.
Last year, our student body raised $73, 000 in pledges for both the Alumni Association Scholarship Fund (AASF) and the Rec Sports Legacy Fund. The AASF awarded ten $2, 000 scholarships to outstanding UCSB students in financial need, and the Rec Sports Legacy Fund provided financial backing for intramural sports and other student-based programs.

Why should I give to the Senior Class Gift?
