The Women’s Fund Endowment ensures the sustainability of our organization as our membership grows and our outreach expands.
Endowment gifts provide a permanent source of funding to support our mission: improving the lives of women, children, and families in south Santa Barbara County.
Larger gifts of appreciated assets, bequests or memorials sustain a donor’s impact on the community for years to come. When you donate to the Women’s Fund Endowment, we hold your gift in perpetuity.
Funds are held in an Agency Endowment fund at the Santa Barbara Foundation and managed by professional investment advisors.
From 2012-2018 assets were held in a field of interest fund at the Santa Barbara Foundation. Ownership of the assets was transferred to the Women’s Fund in December 2019 when we became an independent 501(c)(3).
