The grants, selected by the Women’s Fund’s more than 600 members, are kept secret until announced at the reception (even Women’s Fund members don’t know the results until the event). The Women’s Fund is a collective volunteer donor group focused on the needs of women, children and families in Santa Barbara, Goleta and Carpinteria. The concept is simple: Women’s Fund members pool their charitable donations, research critical community needs and then vote on which agencies will receive the funds collected during the year.
