What We Support
The Foundation considers proposals from non-profit organizations that provide services to Santa Barbara County, primarily in the South County. The Foundation does not restrict grants based on non-profit sector, but has focused on organizations that have been providing services to Santa Barbara for the long term. The Foundation supports organizations in the areas of Health and Human Services, The Arts, Community and Civic Infrastructure and Education.
The Foundation primarily funds capital, operating and program grants, but in rare instances endowment grants may be considered.
The Foundation occasionally supports organizations outside of Santa Barbara County at the request of trustees. However, unsolicited proposals from organizations providing services outside of Santa Barbara County will not be considered.
