Sponsorship Opportunities

Throughout the year the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden partners with individuals and businesses who share our commitment to preserving California's beautiful native plant legacy. We offer a range of opportunities to get involved, including financial sponsorships, in-kind donations of products and services, and volunteerism. For more information or to discuss creating a partnership that is tailored to your business's philantropic and marketing objectives and aligned with the Garden's mission, contact Jenny McClure, Donor Relations Manager at (805) 682-4726, ext. 156.

Support an Event or Learning Opportunity as a Sponsor

Broaden your brand exposure and support a great cause at the same time by sponsoring one of our successful events or educational programs. Sponsors benefit from community recognition and visibility with customized marketing.

  • Santa Barbara Beer Garden - explore the Garden tasting a curated selection of beers (April 2, 2022)
  • Summer Sips - fascinating talks and wine tastings on Saturday afternoons (Summer 2022)
  • Fall Native Planting Season- the largest offering of California natives on the Central Coast (Begins October 2021)
  • Annual Santa Barbara Botanic Garden Conservation Symposium - cutting-edge solutions for preserving and restoring the natural world (Spring 2022)
  • Community Free Days* - give the gift of an admission-free day at the Garden (anytime!)

* Free Day sponsors can benefit general visitation or special audiences like children, seniors, families, veterans or others coming to the Garden admission free. Sponsor a single day or a series throughout the year.

Offer Matching Gifts

Matching gifts are a great way for your company to show its commitment to supporting the community resources. Corporate matching can double, or even triple, contributions made to the Garden.
