The Legacy Circle honors those who have made provisions in their estate plans to support Santa Barbara City College. With generosity and foresight, Legacy Circle members ensure that future students have access to an outstanding higher education.

Making a planned gift is a great way to leave a lasting legacy in the community. Through planned giving, your contribution ensures the SBCC Foundation’s ability to invest in the college and its students for generations to come.

“It was an easy decision to name the SBCC Foundation as the beneficiary of one of my IRAs. I know that the unrestricted funds will make good things happen for the college and its students down the road.” – Dennis Forster, Legacy Circle member
