The Fund for Santa Barbara is dedicated to advancing progressive change by strengthening movements for Economic, Environmental, Political, Racial, and Social Justice. Established in 1980, we are a non-traditional community foundation that supports organizations and groups working for progressive social change in Santa Barbara County. The FUND is dedicated to helping find solutions to current and emerging social problems and issues that challenge our society as a whole. We understand that social conditions improve most dramatically when those who have been denied power and justice lead on their own behalf to confront, challenge, and change the conditions that have denied them access to justice and equity.
