The SBCC Foundation holds a number of events each year to celebrate student success and raise funds for student support programs, scholarships, the SBCC Promise, and more.

Every year in May, the SBCC Scholarship Reception is held on the West Campus Meadow. Students, families and friends, faculty and administrators come together celebrate the scholarship recipients and their hard work.

The annual Spring Forward gala raises funds for student success – the SBCC Foundation’s inaugural gala on Saturday, April 27, 2019 was one for the record books! It was held on the beautiful Santa Barbara City College campus, in the Sports Pavilion, which was transformed into an elegant venue by Merryl Brown Events. Attendees enjoyed an exquisite dinner prepared and served by the renowned Seasons Catering, with assistance from SBCC Culinary Arts students.
