Dear Friend of the MCC,
May we count on you to support the MultiCultural Center at UC Santa Barbara?
It’s easy to make a gift online! Click DONATE and choose "MultiCultural Center".
Or, you may mail your gift check. Print a gift form, make your check payable to "UC Santa Barbara Foundation", and send to:
Student Affairs Grants and Development
University of California, Santa Barbara, CA 93106-5015.
Your gift to the MultiCultural Center will help to expand and enrich our popular and innovative series:
- Race Matters: interactive, intimate discussions and workshops designed to increase our understanding of both racial differences and commonalities;
- Diversity Lectures: conversations to promote awareness and heighten sensitivity regarding diversity issues on campus and in the community;
- Cup of Culture: weekly coffee house and movie nights with filmmakers, directors and guests in post screening Q & A’s;
- Music Concerts: master musicians represent diverse musical genres from home and abroad; and
- The MCC in Santa Barbara presents in downtown Santa Barbara venues during monthly art celebrations
Despite the downsized economy and budget cuts facing our public university, the MCC continues to present cutting-edge programs and provide a public forum and safe space to foster diversity of expression and build community. Your generous support will allow us to bring even more creative programming to the MCC, like the kind you see in the 2012 calendar.
Thank you from all of us at the MCC.
Zaveeni Khan-Marcus, Director
P.S. The MCC welcomes--and deeply appreciates--gifts of any size.
The MultiCultural Center (MCC) at UC Santa Barbara is a dynamic force for change on campus and in the community. Our programs address complex, contemporary issues; institutional racism; political activism; the intersection of race, gender and sexual orientation; environmental concerns; social justice; and more. Musicians, writers, artists, and scholars present their works in our theater, lounge, gallery and at campus and community venues. More than 60 UC Santa Barbara student groups, representing more than 5,000 students, use the MCC as a nexus for organizing and advocating on behalf of their communities; our programming is a critical component of their higher education.
It is a policy of the University of California, Santa Barbara and the UC Santa Barbara Foundation that a modest portion of gifts and/or the income from gifts may be used to defray the costs of raising and administering funds (currently 6%).
