Become an Education Champion!



By making a donation to the Santa Barbara Education Foundation (SBEF), you are helping to support students and teachers on all campuses in the Santa Barbara School Unified School District—elementary, junior high, and high school. Playground equipment, library books, science equipment, musical instruments, and teacher mini-grants are just some of the needs that have been supported by SBEF.

Where public funding falls short, the Santa Barbara Education Foundation seeks to secure private support to ensure excellence and quality in education for all students. Your unrestricted gift will be used where the need is greatest. With a gift of $50 or more, you will be recognized as an Education Booster.

With a gift of $500 or more, you may designate your gift toward a special project or need, and your donation of $1,000 or more will bring you recognition as an Education Champion, with special benefits. Click here for more information about Giving Level Benefits.

You also may make current gifts of cash, stock, real estate, and personal property. Contact the SBEF office if you have questions or need assistance:
