SB Gives! 2019 Applications Open

SANTA BARBARA, May 30, 2019 -- Santa Barbara Gives! is a year-end fundraising program for Santa Barbara nonprofits. The goal is to create a new network of donors for participating nonprofits, make it easy for people to donate via SBGives.org, and inspire first-time donors to support a wide variety of causes in Santa Barbara. Donors to Santa Barbara Gives!, which is a project-based program, will be motivated by both the overall mission of an organization and a specific social-change project.

Participation in Santa Barbara Gives! 2019 will be determined through an open request for proposals. All Santa Barbara nonprofit organizations are encouraged to apply to the Santa Barbara Gives! 2019 campaign. The application is open Thursday, May 30, through Friday, June 28, 2019, at SBGives.org/RFP.

The Fund for Santa Barbara's Grant Making Committee will be reviewing applications. Participating organizations will be determined based on several criteria, including their social-change project. Accepted organizations will be notified by mid-August.

Santa Barbara Gives! launches November 14 and runs through December 31, 2019.


About Santa Barbara Gives!: Santa Barbara Gives! is a year-end giving campaign for Santa Barbara nonprofits born from a partnership between the Santa Barbara Independent and The Fund for Santa Barbara. The 2018 campaign raised over $390,000 for 55 nonprofits.
