UCSB Reads 2024

Giving to UCSB Reads

One of the best things about being immersed in campus life at UCSB is that students, faculty, researchers, and the greater Santa Barbara community can take advantage of the variety of intellectually stimulating, civic-spirited, and socially engaging opportunities that it provides. The award-winning UCSB Reads program is a common reading experience that involves the campus and the broader Santa Barbara community in conversations about a key topic while reading the same book. In 2024, we are looking forward to events that include faculty panels, book clubs, film screenings and creative workshops.

Please consider making a gift to support the program.

Your gift will make possible this year's book giveaway, author visit, and accompanying programs. Every donation in any amount is essential to building and sustaining all of our outreach programs including UCSB Reads. You can support this vital, dynamic initiative by making an online gift - click here. Please designate "UCSB Reads" in the memo field when making your gift.

We gratefully acknowledge our sponsors of 2024 UCSB Reads. Thank you!
