It is said that Santa Barbara is home to more nonprofits per capita than any other county in the country. After writing about them for 30 years, I believe it. All the executive directors met at Chomp on the Rocks restaurant to celebrate the beginning of their fiscal year and chat about their business.

Being given away were copies of The Giving List, which is published by the Montecito Journal Media Group. It lists 52 of our local organizations, highlighting what their missions are with photos. In the back, all the nonprofits are listed in a telephone book style. As Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
