YOUR SUPPORT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
The Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History is a private, nonprofit organization that relies on a variety of funding sources which enable us to share our collections, exhibits, and education program with thousands of visitors, school children, and scientists each year.
All gifts that support the Museum's annual, capital, and endowment needs are important. There are many ways in which a gift can be made, most with income tax savings. Please consider a gift to the Museum to help make it possible for us to continue to offer interesting exhibits and important education programming for our community.
