Montecito Journal's Giving List

We are thrilled to announce our participation in Montecito Journal's The Giving List Santa Barbara

This annual guide, published by the Montecito Journal Media Group, has been delivered to homes across Montecito, Hope Ranch, and other areas in Santa Barbara, as well as to most of Santa Barbara’s charitable foundations and wealth managers. Copies of the book are also available at select Montecito Bank & Trust locations in South Santa Barbara County. Our inclusion helps to ensure that AHA! has high visibility with key supporters like you. 

As another challenging year comes to a close, we are heartened by the positive recognition we have received from The Giving List and the light it will continue to shine on the important work we are doing—work we could not do without your support. We look forward to a brighter 2022, and it is our sincere hope that you will help us start the new year strong. 
Our programs happen ONLY with your support!
