Creative Writing and Poetry Awards


Alyssa Ogi, recipient of the Robert J. Emmons Poetry Award.

As we begin our ninth decade of service to our community, our vision is to be an even stronger catalyst for the most positive impact to the greatest number of people in our communities. As such, the Santa Barbara Foundation will no longer be considering individual grants; instead we are partnering with the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara.

We are confident that our focus on increasing funding to programs such as the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara, which has a broad reach, will better enable us to have a greater and more positive impact with countywide benefits.
