This year, The League of Women Voters Santa Barbara is honored to be participating in Santa Barbara Gives! The campaign—now in its second year—will raise funds for what organizers call “some of our region’s most important community-based organizations.” The fundraising goal this year is $500,000. Tax-deductible gifts can be made through Dec. 31, but if you haven’t given yet, Giving Tuesday (Nov. 27) is a good time to make your contribution to LWVSB.
