Carp Valley Foundation Gets Grant

Fund for Santa Barbara Provides $7,000 for Advocates

The Carpinteria Valley Foundation has received a $7,000 grant from the Fund for Santa Barbara, a non-profit foundation that supports grassroots organizations working for social, economic and environmental justice in Santa Barbara County.

CVF, the nonprofit 501 (c)3 arm of the Carpinteria Valley Association, was one of 10 organizations to receive funding, among more than 30 groups applying. Over the past few years, CVF and CVA have retained the ongoing services of the Environmental Defense Center in challenging Venoco’s Paredon Project.

While the future of that project is still uncertain, CVF and CVA remain committed to protecting Carpinteria’s ground water, air quality, the habitat of native species, human health, and the quality of life in this unique place.
