UC Press Foundation
As a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the UC Press Foundation raises funds to support UC Press and its vital role as an independent progressive publisher. Donations from both individuals and institutions enable UC Press to publish nearly 200 new books and over 30 multi-issue journals annually, maintain approximately 5,000 backlist titles in print, and offer some 3,000 books and all its journals in digital formats.
Sales revenue and modest University of California subsidies cannot cover the operating expenses for UC Press. Donors like you are critical to our survival and continued success, providing the resources we need to embark on new initiatives and publish bold, forward-thinking works that inspire engagement, drive policy, and inform debate.
