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

Campus Conversations are virtual discussions of current topics of interest to the SBCC community, featuring speakers from a variety of campus departments and programs, followed by a Q&A. Visit the Campus Conversations page to register for an upcoming Campus Conversation or access our archive of past sessions.

Each May, students, families, faculty, and administrators come together on the West Campus Meadow for the SBCC Scholarship Reception, a joyful celebration of our scholarship recipients.

The Foundation’s second annual Spring Forward! Gala was held on Thursday, October 1, 2020. Reinvented as a virtual event, the Spring Forward! Gala celebrated Santa Barbara City College and the many ways it serves, educates, and inspires students and our community. Thank you to our generous sponsors, donors, and everyone who joined us!. The outpouring of support was incredible as we witnessed once again how vital SBCC is to our community
