How to Give

Donor Recognition

Antioch University Santa Barbara recognizes the philanthropic spirit and generosity of our donors and strives to create meaningful opportunities for involvement in our campus community. In addition to acknowledging all gifts and responsibly using all funds, we communicate frequently and engage our community of donors in order to build and nurture lifelong relationships. We will honor the generosity of our donors by installing a Donor Honor Wall in the main entrance foyer of our new campus. This artist-designed recognition will be made of glass tiles integrated into the wall’s design and etched with names of donors at the Patron, Benefactor, Visionary, and President’s Circle levels. Our donors are also celebrated at a variety of special recognition events throughout the year.
