Endowment Grant Program

The Hutton Parker Foundation Endowment Grant Program provides an opportunity for local Santa Barbara- based nonprofit organizations to secure endowment funding. This opportunity is available only one time per agency and is to be used to establish a new endowment.

The Endowment Program has been designed to produce a concise result. Hutton Parker Foundation has developed documentation, which provides step-by-step instructions and sample policies for establishing an endowment. Once an agency has completed the application process, they will have created a viable endowment fund and valid endowment policy.
