The Foundation currently seeks to concentrate its funding in
support of initiatives that offer practical assistance to community-based
organizations in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties. We are especially
interested in funding grassroots organizations which seek to empower
excluded populations. We want to encourage
networking and coalition building within communities. We also are
interested in supporting collaborative efforts with other funders.
The Foundation is most concerned with supporting creative
grassroots programs which focus on capacity building and
social justice. Our priority is to fund projects creating
a social or societal change, rather than individual
empowerment or development of leadership skills in
individuals. Our preference is for programs in which those involved remain
in the community and affect public policy.
