Our organization earned the GuideStar Platinum Seal of Transparency, showcasing the progress and results we’re making toward our mission!
Our mission is to inspire meaningful connections to Santa Barbara history.
The Santa Barbara Historical Museum is committed to the privacy of its donors. We take donor confidentiality very seriously. We do not sell, rent or exchange donor lists to any individual or organization for any purpose, ever. Nor do we share donor names or contact information externally without permission. This policy applies to all information received by the Santa Barbara Historical Museum, both online and offline, as well as any electronic, written, or oral communications.
As an anonymous donor, you may request that your name not be shared with other than essential staff members, other fund advisors or the public. However, your name may appear on internal reports or event lists shared with limited staff members without gift amounts or fund information referenced. For any grant recommendation from a donor-advised fund, you can decide whether or not to be anonymous.
Unless you decide to be anonymous, your name and/or fund name may be shared with staff and/or board members when a donation is received. Your name and/or fund name could be listed in our annual donor recognition advertisement in the print media, in our annual report, or on our website, and gift amount ranges may be referenced.
