Donate to the Department
You can give to the department and specify how you would like your funds used, or allow the department to use your gift where needed most. Many employers provide matching contributions -- some up to a three-to-one match! Please check with your employer if you are unsure.
Your generosity will ensure a robust future for undergraduate and graduate students in Earth Science.
Gifts of $1,000 or more will qualify you as a member of the Chancellor's Council, even if a portion of that gift was a match by your employer.
Our key priorities include:
- Unrestricted support (Where Most Needed)
- Graduate support
- Undergraduate support
- General Field Instruction
Donations are tax deductible. You can also pledge via email to Andy Wyss, our Department Chair, who will personally follow up on your request. The tax ID for UCSB is 95-6006145.
Many other giving opportunities also exist, such as planned gift arrangements that could be beneficial to both you and the Department. Contact Andy Wyss would be happy to discuss such possibilities with you at your convenience.
Please note that the default for online donations is to “Where Most Needed." If you wish to donate to a specific fund other than the two listed above, click this link Donation Form Download (pdf) and print the form.
