Field of Interest Fund

What is a Field of Interest Fund?

A Field of Interest Fund (FOI) supports a specific issue area of interest that you define. You identify an area of charitable interest – as broad or narrow as you desire – and the Santa Barbara Foundation evaluates organizations that do the best work in the interest area and then makes grants to the organizations that best fit your interest. You should think about setting up a Field of Interest Fund if you wish to make an impact in a specific area, but do not want to select a specific organization.
