Types of Support

The Santa Barbara Foundation recognizes that non-profits needs have had to dramatically shift in how they serve their clients due to the COVID-19 outbreak across their state and country. To better equip agencies to both maintain social distancing and assure the health and safety of their employees, the Santa Barbara Foundation has established the following guidelines for its Small Capacity Building grants in the following areas.
Defined projects that allow the agency to equip its workforce to either work remotely and/or serve its clients remotely through phone, online video or other means
Small capital items and equipment that specifically allow your staff to serve clients and fulfill its mission
Organizational development and capacity building
Staff or board training and development
NOTE: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic they are prioritizing proposals that take into account the pandemic and its impact on your agency achieving its mission. COVID-19 related capital item requests may include (but are not limited to): reusable Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) such as face shields, sneeze guards, and other items needed to retrofit work environments. Requests will NOT be considered for single-use/disposable PPE or cleaning/sanitizing supplies.
