The goal of the Spirit of Entrepreneurship™ Foundation, a 501(c)3 corporation, is to support entrepreneurship at all levels in Santa Barbara County. We'd like your help. Currently, we are achieving this by honoring successful women entrepreneurs at our annual Spirit of Entrepreneurship™ Awards, the proceeds of which provide financial support to the high school and college student winners of the SBCC Scheinfeld Center's New Venture Challenge. The funds we raise provide seed capital which they can use to to implement their winning business ideas and to continue their education. So far the Spirit of Entrepreneurship Foundation has contributed $30,000 that has been distributed among the student winners.

As we grow, we will also offer additional scholarship funds to the high school winners to use at the college or university of their choice. You can help us support tomorrow's entrepreneurs and fulfill our goal of encouraging future economic growth in the County by making a tax-deductible donation NOW.
