A Message from the Chair

Kamil Hasan, UC Santa Cruz Foundation Chair

Dear UC Santa Cruz Friends and Well Wishers,

I am proud to serve as the Board Chair of the UC Santa Cruz Foundation. 

Founded in 1974, the Foundation partners with the University administration to advance the goals of the University and help the University in raising philanthropic funds. As volunteer leaders, the Trustees provide their time, personal financial support, leverage their networks for fundraising, and also serve as University's advocates, advisors, as well as stewards of University's endowed funds.

Since its founding in 1965, UC Santa Cruz has made amazing progress, and is now recognized as one of the leading Universities in the country in many areas of academics and research. My vision is for the Foundation to work closely with Chancellor Larive and the administration in increasing its resources to enable it to hire the best faculty, further improve the quality of education and research, work closely with Silicon Valley, and help produce successful graduates who can make major impact in solving global problems.

I invite you to explore this website to learn more about the UC Santa Cruz Foundation and to determine how you can help contribute to the continued success of this young but very fast growing University.
