SBF Small Capacity Building Grant Deadline

November 7

Santa Barbara Foundation’s Small Capacity Building Grant Program awards grants with a short review period and up to $5,000 aimed at strengthening the organizational capacity and effectiveness of Santa Barbara County nonprofits. The Foundation believes organizations are more effective when they are equipped with thoughtful strategy, strong leadership, sound operations and compelling communication. It is our hope that this funding helps organizations strengthen these fundamentals in support of their mission and better programmatic outcomes. The Foundation may also consider funding small capital expenditures. To provide flexibility and assist applicants in their planning, the Foundation offers ten opportunities through November to apply.

Application Deadlines: February 7 | March 7 | April 4 | May 2 | June 6 | July 5 | August 1 | September 6 | October 3 | November 7

Organizations may submit one Small Capacity Building Grant application per calendar year. To access the complete guidelines, additional details and to apply visit:
