The Santa Barbara Independent and The Fund for Santa Barbara are proud to partner in the launch of Santa Barbara Gives!
While Santa Barbara County is fortunate to be a region of tremendous prosperity and natural beauty, our region also faces many of the same problems that challenge our society as a whole. A vital piece holding our community together is the network of nonprofits that work so tirelessly to improve the lives of us all. But they need our continued support.
Most of these groups are working for change by focusing on the root causes of societal problems, by providing long-term solutions, while operating in a manner that advances democracy here at home, and being responsive to and directed by the people they serve.
We encourage you to take a good look at these Big Ideas and consider supporting any number of the organizations featured. We hope this inspires you to Give!
