Giving Opportunities


There are numerous philanthropic giving options available to benefit the research and education missions of the AlloSphere. For a major donor there is the opportunity to name the facility and be recognized for your generous support.

It is also possible to invest in the scientific and artistic efforts of the AlloSphere Research Facility by making a one-time or ongoing tax-deductible donation. Gifts of equipment or software are also welcomed and greatly appreciated.

Support for top graduate students is crucial to facilitate the research agenda of the AlloSphere. Typically it is the team of graduate students who take the scientific and technical data and work creatively with the involved faculty member or corporate representative to prepare the data for display in 3D. Extramural grant funding is often available to assist engineering and science students; financial support is typically less available for artists, musicians, and students enrolled in multidisciplinary programs like Media Arts and Technology. Please consider a contribution directed to graduate student support.

For more information on giving opportunities, please contact Dr. JoAnn Kuchera-Morin, the director of the AlloSphere Research Facility, at (805) 893-3010 or jkm (at) create.ucsb.edu.
