Give to Your Passions

Outright Gifts

Fundraising Flexibility with You in Mind


A fund at the Santa Barbara Foundation allows you to give to organizations of your choice over time, in your time, in your own name or the name you choose, without the administrative complication and expense of a private foundation.

Your outright gift gives you the opportunity to receive immediate tax benefits, legacy planning, and asset growth through investment, so you can give more to the causes that help our community thrive. Make your charitable vision a reality and start a fund with us today.

Your Options:

These funds can also be established as planned gifts. For more information on setting up a fund that impacts our county in the future, please visit our planned giving page.
