The Santa Barbara Museum of Art believes in the power of art to enrich, nurture, and unite us. We strive to present exhibitions of international significance, offer exceptional and innovative education programs to people of all ages, and cultivate a welcoming community for all.

Make an impact by donating to SBMA today.

  • Your gift to the Annual Fund supports the critical needs of SBMA: From presenting world-class exhibitions; to offering an array of exceptional, free education programs; to maintaining Museum facilities and day-to-day operations.
  • Your gift to the Education Fund directly supports SBMA’s many educational programs and opportunities for the community: From classroom and after school activities for students; to in-person and virtual school field trips; to adult studio classes and workshops; to free community days and community outreach.
  • Your gift to the SBMA Scholarship Program ensures that interested and inspired young artists in our community can participate in camps by removing the barrier of cost. As students create art, they build confidence, become actively familiar with the Museum, and learn skills that enhance communication, literacy , and critical thinking across all areas of the curriculum.

Thank you for your generous support in fostering meaningful connections with art in our community – and beyond.

For any questions about making a donation, please contact Karen Kawaguchi, Director of External Affairs, at 805.884.6428 or
