2014 to present
The Hutton Parker Foundation is the force behind a lot of what our Santa Barbara County community regards as our thriving and welcoming nonprofit local environment being home to somewhere upwards of 2000. The Foundation strives to make a difference and they do it with funding programs that support nonprofit sustainability and longevity. They assist agencies in achieving their highest level of performance and delivery of services which, in turn, creates stronger, more efficient communities that we all benefit from.
It’s one of the largest private family foundations in the County and owns and operates commercial properties that house more than 60 local nonprofits. It doesn’t stop there. The Foundation also awards almost $4 million in grants, donations and discounted rent to approximately 300 nonprofit organizations each year.
“Areas of interest include: Arts & Culture, Education, Health & Human Services, Children, Youth & Families, and Civic & Community. Funding programs include: Core Operating Support, Marketing & Media Grants, Endowment and Capital Support.”
In the last 25 years and in their own words:
“Hutton Parker Foundation has made dozens of nonprofit sector Program Related Investment (loans) and loan guarantees. The Foundation owns and operates 17 commercial properties housing nearly 50 nonprofit tenants. Our responsive granting programs include core/general operating support funding, media and marketing support in partnership with local media outlets, endowment and capital grants. During this time, the Foundation‘s assets have increased to more than $100,000,000 while distributing over $75,000,000 in grants and rent subsidies to local nonprofits.”
What We Did & Why
The new website has been reorganized and re-written. It is a celebration of the re-opening of the Foundation’s home in the historic Hill-Carrillo Adobe and its community meeting spaces which has been newly restored. The building has hosted community gatherings and meetings since 1826 and is once again available. You can read about the building’s history on the site.
We were thrilled to have the opportunity to create a second website for Hutton Parker because they do extraordinary work. We were also thrilled because over the years, we’ve worked with so many local nonprofits and this was an opportunity to participate at the source with the Foundation responsible for the success of so many amazing organizations. The site requirements were straightforward, primarily informational. The needs to disseminate information, provide applications and make the process of applying for support as accessible as possible.
