SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, CA – The Santa Barbara Foundation has partnered with UC Santa Barbara’s Gevirtz School to undertake the 2022 Santa Barbara County Nonprofit Leader Survey. The Center for Evaluation & Assessment (CEA), housed in Gevirtz School of Education, is collaborating with the Santa Barbara Foundation in designing, implementing, and analyzing a survey that will provide the most up-to-date and holistic picture of Santa Barbara County’s nonprofit sector.
This survey is designed to be taken by a senior leader at each of the County’s nonprofits who has a comprehensive understanding of the organization’s operations. The survey consists of questions about economic and employment trends, leadership, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Access (DEIA) practices, and organizational needs. The survey is the first step in a larger process of additional research and creating a report of the findings to deepen understanding of the nonprofit sector in Santa Barbara County.
