The 2014 Senior Class Gift will support two funds.

The Associated Students
Academic Resource Fund
The UC Santa Barbara
Community Fund
This fund will help UC Santa Barbara students with the cost of textbooks and study materials for their coursework. Gifts to the 2014 Senior Class gift will establish a fund functioning as an endowment to provide support to continuing students with academic promise. Consideration will also be given to students who demonstrate financial need. This fund seeks to honor the UCSB students who were victims of the tragedy and serves to memorialize their lasting contributions to the UC Santa Barbara community. The fund will provide scholarships in the names of the victims. Additionally, the fund will allow us to best assist our students through additional resources, including counseling, academic assistance, and other forms of immediate and long-term support.

About the class gift

  • The mission of the Senior Class Gift campaign is to promote a philanthropic spirit among the graduating class by providing Seniors with the opportunity to leave a legacy by giving to their University and fellow Gauchos.
  • The Textbook Scholarship fund will give scholarships that are to be used at the UCSB Bookstore to buy textbooks for those students that apply and qualify.
  • Our goal this year is to reach $100,000 in pledges! And to increase attendance to Senior  Class Gift events to 2,500!

History of the Senior 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.

In 2013 the Senior Class Gift went to the Alumni Association Scholarship Fund and the Community Financial Fund which raised $56,000 in pledges playing a substantial role in providing financial education for students and a more affordable education.

Why Should You Give?

Pay it forward. By supporting the Senior Class Gift, you are providing future students the opportunity to get the same great education and experience you have.

The amount of your contribution does not matter – rather, our goal is to express how important the act of giving is. We are building a culture of philanthropy and we aspire for total student involvement, even if it means $5 per person!


What should I give?

Please pledge or give any amount of your choosing. Many have decided it’s appropriate to give your year- $20.14!

What’s our goal?

The Class of 2014’s goal is to reach $100, 000 in pledges!
