A Story of Collective Impact

Every story contains turning points – when the course of the plot pivots toward an unknown future. What if you could influence the direction of that story?

Gauchos united to do just that on Give Day 2018, proving that the story of UC Santa Barbara is endless. It's a collective story about a place we know and people we admire. Across the globe, our community shared photos and memories online. On campus, we celebrated at pop-up events that brought us together.

If you participated in Give Day 2018 on April 12, we extend a heartfelt thank you. You've shown us that pride in UC Santa Barbara is unparalleled, and your support will inspire achievement like never before.

The narrative of UCSB has no end because together, we’re still writing the future. #GauchosAreGrateful
