October 2 Site Visit

Register Online at

This is your invitation to the 8th Annual Site Visit on October 2

Join us on October 2 when we visit our most recent grant recipients to see first-hand how they are changing lives and leveraging the $520,000 in grants the Women's Fund awarded to them on April 30, 2012.

You won't want to miss the 8th Annual Women's Fund Site Visit from 8:30 am to 1:45 pm on Tuesday, October 2, 2012. This popular event features a morning bus tour of three grantees followed by a luncheon program and updates from our other five 2011-12 recipients. 

New location

This year we'll enjoy the hospitality of one of our grantees - the Santa Barbara Public Library - which will serve as the departure location for our morning tours as well as our site for lunch. Public parking is available at the Granada Garage on Anacapa, one block from the library at 40 E. Anapamu.

Buses will leave promptly from the library at 9 a.m. We'll return to the library for lunch and updates from our other 2011-12 grant recipients. After lunch, we'll cross the street to the court house where we'll hear from our final grantee, CASA, in the Mural Room.


Because this is such a powerful learning experience, you are encouraged to bring a friend who would like to know more about the Women's Fund. As in the past, space is limited for this event so RSVP now!

If you're unable to join us for the entire Site Visit program, you can come for the bus tours only or for lunch at noon. Please let us know when you RSVP.

$10 Charge for lunch

Although WF Member Carole MacElhenny will again generously underwrite our Site Visit luncheon, we all would prefer to have her underwriting dollars added to the 2012-13 grants pool. Therefore, we're asking Site Visit attendees to help with lunch costs by paying $10 (more is welcome), which we'll collect on October 2.

Click here for our electronic invitation and RSVP link. (We're saving money by not sending printed invitations this year.) RSVP deadline is Sept. 21.

Thanks to our generous Site Visit underwriters

Here are the members and companies that have donated their money and resources to underwrite the 2012 Site Visit: Carole MacElhenny, Ferguson's Bath & Kitchen Gallery, Santa Barbara Airbus, Nikki Rickard, Barbara Lowes.
