Thanks to the incredible generosity of The Roddick Foundation, Hutton Parker Foundation, California Arts Council, and MCASB Board of Trustees we are launching a matching campaign to maintain and advance meaningful artistic engagement within our community.

Our grassroots passion to connect through the art of our time remains steadfast. We aim to grow and adapt in ways that respond to your interests, aspirations, and needs. If you are able, we warm-heartedly ask for your support with a gift that will help us do more for YOU!

If you are able to give, your impact will be doubled with a dollar-for-dollar donation matching up to $90,000!

MCASB has recommitted to our role in providing the Santa Barbara community with a safe space to connect and learn from one another through our meaningful exhibitions and exceptional programming. Our dedication to serve the community is grounded in principles of inclusivity and diversity; as such MCASB admission is free to all. When shelter-in-place orders forced us to close our doors in March, it allowed our board and staff to reflect on how MCASB has served Santa Barbara. We came to the conclusion that there is so much more we can do, but we need your help!

ALL contributors will receive a complimentary one-year Participate Membership and gift!

Your donation is tax-deductible to the extent allowable by law.

If you have any questions please contact Christina Davis, Development Associate at or call 805.966.5373 ex.104

Due to regulatory complexities, MCASB has opted to cancel the drawing previously scheduled for October 16, 2020.
