We are committed to the local communities we serve and welcome sponsorship requests from nonprofits in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.


Due to the tremendous need in our community and our commitment to fulfill as many requests as possible, our sponsorship amounts range from $100 to $2,500, with some exceptions. Sponsorship requests are reviewed monthly, so please submit your request 6-8 weeks from the date funds are needed.

Please have the following on hand as you begin your application:

  • 501(c)3 IRS designation letter (if first time applying with us).
  • Signed W-9 form (if first time applying with us).
  • Materials explaining sponsorship levels, including marketing benefits.
  • For organizations whose missions and/or specific support serves over 50% low and moderate income individuals and/or families (“LMI”) as defined by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), please make sure to include any documentation that can be used for LMI verification.
