The Spring Give

The Spring Give is your opportunity to give UCSC students access to experiences and services that will help them succeed well past graduation. 

For the next two weeks, you can help a range of student-centered projects as they compete for extra challenge funds. 

Your gift to the Spring Give will provide Banana Slugs with resources and opportunities that let them take full advantage of their time at UC Santa Cruz—ultimately changing their life trajectories.

Give to your favorite project now!
