United Way Campaign

United for Our Community

Through its long history as a partner with United Way of Santa Barbara County, UC Santa Barbara has worked to make a difference in the lives of children, families and seniors in our local community. United Way's special focus on education is an extension of our own mission to provide opportunities and access for the next generation of students. Our annual United Way Workplace Campaign, "United for Our Community" gives university employees an opportunity to contribute their time, talents and/or financial resources.

United for Education 2019-2020 Report


At the conclusion of the 2019-2020 United Way Campaign, UC Santa Barbara employees gave over $104,000 in one-time donations and through ongoing payroll deductions. Such philanthropy represents the generosity of our campus community and their commitment to the wellbeing of the greater Santa Barbara area. Though impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic forced the cancellation of the 2nd Annual Bean Bag Tournament, most of the entry fees were redirected to the campaign to support United Way's Local COVID-19 Joint Response Fund.
