Together we can make a difference!
The community of Carpinteria supported me in so many ways as I grew up. it is my joy and privilege to give back in any way I can; which is why I donate a portion of each sales commission I make to the Carpinteria non-profit 501(c)(3) of my client’s choice. Below is a list of community organizations I volunteer with and contribute as well. These organizations are making our community a better place child by child and day by day.
My Favorite Local Charities
Carpinteria Education Foundation (CEF) exists to:
Promote Excellence in Education
To Channel Private Sector Resources to Carpinteria Unified School District (CUSD)
To Inform and Involve the Community of the Needs of the School District
We are fortunate to be part of a supportive community that fosters a strong commitment to the schools and Carpinteria children. To protect and enhance the quality of life in our community, and to insure the value of our homes and property, we must continue to provide supplemental support for the educational and cultural enrichment opportunities for all students in the district.
Together, we can ensure our local children are on the cutting edge of technology, enriched by participating in the arts, have the opportunity to carry on Carpinteria’s rich agricultural economy, and compete in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) as they enter a workforce that continues to evolve.
In order to inspire girls and young women to be strong, smart and bold, Girls Inc. of Carpinteria seeks to empower girls and women to achieve personal, social, economic and political success. We strive to inspire critical thinking and progressive action in their lives. All programming is specifically designed to support this mission, to intentionally change girls’ lives and their world. In addition, our organization actively advocates for the elimination of gender barriers that limit girls’ options and involves them as agents of community change.
The United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County (UBGC) serves more than 2,700 children ages 6-18 and their families at four Club locations: Carpinteria, Santa Barbara Westside, Goleta, and Lompoc. In addition, we have three school sites and one 55-acre residential Camp in the Santa Ynez mountains. UBGC fills the gap between school and home by providing after-school and summer programming in a safe environment where there is an opportunity to learn skills through positive reinforcement from caring and professional staff. These programs change lives in three core ways: by encouraging academic success; building good character and leadership; and teaching healthy lifestyles.
