Unrestricted Gifts are most valuable because they enable the Goleta Valley Historical Society to apply the funds where they are most needed. Gifts of cash (check or credit card), appreciated securities, retirement assets and pledges over time are welcome.

Non-cash gifts of property, art, vehicles, and other personal property are also appreciated.


Shopping? Yes, shopping. When you shop on Amazon Smile, the Society receives a portion of the charity of your choice.

Go to smile.amazon.com and link your existing amazon account or create a new one!  Then choose Goleta Valley Historical Society as the charity you want to benefit from your purchases!  Then start shopping!

Designated Gifts

Donor Designated Gifts can benefit the Goleta Valley Historical Society’s current projects such as the design and construction of exhibits, programs such as Pioneer Days, or a specific department: collections, education, events, or the Arboretum Restoration Project. Naming opportunities are available.

Memorial & Honorary Gifts

Memorial & Honorary Gifts provide a lasting tribute to a friend or loved one. The Society will send an acknowledgement to the families of those memorialized or to the person honored without specifying the amount.
