Supporting Community Based Nonprofit Organizations

Hutton Parker Foundation strives to provide financial stability and organizational sustainability to community-based nonprofit organizations throughout Santa Barbara County.  Our funding programs are designed to assist agencies in achieving their highest level of performance and delivery of services resulting in stronger, more efficient communities for all.

We believe without stable, diverse funding streams and a strong, supported organizational structure, critical services and programs provided by our local nonprofit entities become ineffective, or at worst, cease to exist.  Our support encourages organizations to:

  • Develop Strategic Operational Business Plans
  • Define Targeted Fund Development Tactics
  • Increase Staff, Program and Service Capacity

In addition to funding, the Foundation also specializes in providing quality office and meeting space to local area nonprofit organizations through the acquisition and development of commercial real estate properties.

The Foundation’s giving is primarily focused throughout Santa Barbara County, California.
