To provide for the future, the Student Art Fund has opened an endowment fund with the Santa Barbara Foundation. This permanent fund gives the organization yearly income and is professionally managed as part of the foundation’s investment program. An endowment fund delivers essential stability, will grow over time, and will facilitate strategic planning.
The Santa Barbara Foundation provides professional gift planning assistance for the Student Art Fund and its donors, facilitating gifts of all types including cash, gifts of non-cash assets such as stock and real estate, charitable bequests, gifts of retirement plan assets, gifts of life insurance, and charitable trusts.
Every year, quite a range of supplies are needed by Ceramics, Drawing, Sculpture, Painting, Design, Photography, Jewelry, Video/T.V. Production, Art History, Digital Art, and various classes combining these media, as well as by individual art students. Helping art classes and art students by supplementing art supplies was our earliest goal and continues to be our top priority. We purchase requested supplies and give them directly to classrooms.
Thanks to our volunteers, working relationships with art teachers and local artists, and knowledge of the particular needs of art classes, we also receive and distribute donated supplies. We have delivered donations of airbrushes, paint and related supplies, paper and related supplies, frames and mat board, easels, sketchbooks, art books, mat cutters, and miscellaneous tools.
