Ready, Set, Match!
Local Family Commits to Matching $25,000 in Donations for Autism Services

Donors Scott and Kelly Trueman believe that all families, regardless of income, should have access to the life-changing services provided at UCSB’s Koegel Autism Center, a state-of-the-art autism research facility located within the Gevirtz School of Education.

The biggest benefit of giving to the Gevirtz School is having the opportunity to pay back. We hope that the gift from our estate will help those who cannot afford graduate school, as well as make it easier for those in the program to concentrate on their research. Going forward, we can’t assume state funds alone will support the work of the school. In the future, we hope more friends will step up for the Gevirtz School.
