Dear Gaucho Soccer Supporter,

There’s something about record crowds. Maybe it’s the headlines, the energy created or just the fact that the Gauchos own the top five NCAA record crowds of all time. And we mean own them! A National Championship united a campus and sparked a community who support these young men who take the pitch on spectacular Santa Barbara nights. With NCAA consecutive appearances numbering into the double digits, competing at the highest level is a staple of Head Coach Tim Vom Steeg’s program. These young men from diverse backgrounds unite as Gauchos and represent the competitive university we are today. Your gift ignites that passion.

Did you know?

  • Gifts are tax deductibles and support men’s soccer scholarships, program resources and student-athlete support.
  • Living Scholars (gifts of $5,000 and above annually) offers a priceless connection by pairing donors and student-athletes.
  • Ways to give: Cash, check or credit card (payable to UC Regents); payroll deductions (UCSB employees); matching gifts; gifts of stock or real estate; multi-year pledges; gift planning; Athletics Legacy gifts and endowments; and Forever Gauchos. For more information please visit

If I have learned anything from observing college soccer over the years, it is that nothing can be taken for granted. We have to keep pushing and to reach our ultimate goal; your support of our program remains the most important component.

On behalf of the players and coaching staff, we want to personally thank you for your past support and for considering a donation to the UCSB Gaucho Fund in support of men’s soccer.
