Montecito Library Funding

The Friends of the Montecito Library are undertaking an exciting action plan to preserve the strength of this cherished institution and to ensure its continued financial future!

Funding from Santa Barbara County has increased lately, although it is still below the state funding average. The First District Supervisor and staff have been working with the Friends to increase funding and keep the Library open at least five days a week.

  • Short-Term Operating Funds

    The Friends plan to increase annual revenues, through a broadening of our base of donors and an increase in the amount of the average gift to meet annual operating expenses.

  • Long-Term Endowment

    The Friends have initiated a capital campaign to replenish, grow and invest our reserves to the point that they become an endowment of suf cient size to assure the future of the library for years to come.
