A collective donor group, the Women's Fund of Santa Barbara enables women to combine their charitable dollars into significant grants focused on the critical needs of women, children and families in south Santa Barbara County.

  • We conduct our own rigorous research.
  • Members vote on how to distribute collected funds.
  • We have distributed $5.1 million in grants in the last decade.

We welcome all women who may join as individual members or part of a group.  All donations are tax-deductible.
