Donor Privacy Policy

Our Policy

The Santa Barbara Foundation maintains the highest level of privacy concerning its donors’ contact and fund information.

All donor contact and fund information is used for internal purposes only and is never published. While donor contact information is required by the IRS, it is not available for public inspection.

The Santa Barbara Foundation does not sell, trade, or share its donor list with any organization. It also does not send mailings to its donors on behalf of other organizations.

The names of all donor funds are published in the Santa Barbara Foundation communication materials and media, unless a donor prefers their fund to be unlisted or identified as “anonymous.”
