“Does my organization’s project align with grant guidelines?”

“This is my first time applying for a grant with the Santa Barbara Foundation. How do I get started?”

“How will the Foundation’s new strategic priorities affect the grant application process?”

These are some of the questions you may have when navigating the Foundation’s grant guidelines, and we want to hear from you!

With the Foundation’s reveal of its new strategic priorities, we understand there are many questions on how this will impact the nonprofit sector and the residents it serves in Santa Barbara County. Our goal is to be open, transparent, and responsive in our engagement with the community.
