Supporting Community-Based Nonprofit Organizations Throughout Santa Barbara County.

General Operating Support Grants

Complementing 2018 Recent Quick Response Crisis Grant Program

July 16, 2018  —  As promised in early 2018, Hutton Parker Foundation responded to the needs of the local nonprofit sector impacted by both the Thomas Fire and Montecito Mudflows with emergency general operating support through our Quick Response Crisis Grant program.  The Foundation initially committed $1 million in support of this program.  Through May 2018, HPF has funded nearly $2.3 million in Crisis Response Grants to 75 nonprofit organizations.

Aware that many of our local nonprofits did not technically qualify for application to our Crisis Response program, HPF is facilitating a General Operating Support Grant program for those Santa Barbara County based organizations that did not receive Core Support funding in 2017, nor Crisis Response funding in 2018.

To apply for General Operating Support Grants  please follow the link below or contact Pam Lewis, COO at or 805-957-4740 x 105 with any questions.

Application Deadline:    September 15, 2018
