UC Santa Barbara’s Parents Fund creates a community of parents actively engaged in their students’ college experience as well as provides the primary vehicle to philanthropically support the University. Ensuring UC Santa Barbara’s academic excellence requires more than state funds and student fees. It requires the involvement and generous support of all UC Santa Barbara parents, affording valuable enrichment to every student. The Parents Fund & Outreach program seeks to strengthen parent engagement with UC Santa Barbara by hosting campus and regional activities focused on many different and amazing aspects of the campus experience. With your help, we are committed to keeping UC Santa Barbara a great public research university built on the foundation of a strong undergraduate education.
