Donate to KCSB here 


KCSB does not receive any funding from the University of California system. Rather, our funding primarily comes from student lock-in fees. The remainder of our budget is fueled by donations from students and community members like yourself! With the help of your donations, KCSB has been able to proudly serve as a student-run, non-commercial, educational, alternative, and independent station for over 60 years!

The funding we receive finances our operational expenses, station staff, and special projects year to year. Our operational expenses include transmitter repairs and studio renovations to help improve the quality of our station for our programmers and station staff. KCSB maintains a 24/7 hybrid programming schedule featuring students, community members, and alumni. There are quarterly orientations, training programs, and free events open to the community. Your donations will help us continue playing an active role supporting DIY, independent artists and the Santa Barbara community.
