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 the state and country.

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

The maximum award for Small Capacity Building Grant is $5,000.
The grant period is up to one year from the award date.
A final report is required and is due within 13 months of the grant award, preferably no later than 30 days following the project completion.
