Why Give to UC Press?

One of the most distinguished publishers in the United States, University of California Press enriches lives around the world by advancing scholarship in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. UC Press members play a critical role in providing the resources necessary to publish outstanding books, journals, and digital resources that:

  • Set the standard for excellence in scholarship and craftsmanship
  • Promote independent thinking and diverse voices
  • Examine the historical record and draw relevance to current events
  • Provide solutions to challenging social and environmental issues
  • Preserve the artistic and intellectual achievements that define us as human
  • Illuminate the unique culture and environment of California and the West

Help Give Voice to Great Ideas

Like other nonprofit institutions such as schools and colleges, museums, and performing arts companies, UC Press cannot sustain its programs from earned income alone. While UC Press ranks among the top six university presses in the United States, it receives less than 10 percent of its budget from the University of California. Private giving is essential to continue publishing and disseminating ideas that make a difference.

As a donor, you will enjoy enrollment as a UC Press member. Besides the satisfaction of knowing your support sustains the work of UC Press, you will receive a number of additional benefits such as gift books, discounts of 20 to 40 percent on book purchases, invitations to special events featuring UC Press authors, and subscription to the UC Press newsletter and seasonal catalogs.
