Join the Giving Revolution: Santa Cruz Gives
November 17 - December 31, 2021
This year's holiday campaign raises funds for 80 local nonprofits. Learn about their projects on each profile page and be inspired! Minimum donation is only $5.
If you have walked on a clean beach, enjoyed a park, attended an arts or music event live or on zoom, adopted a pet, received health care services, or enrolled a child in an activity — you have encountered the good work of numerous local nonprofits.
Often the benefits are not visible — when the work prevents or mitigates negative impacts. One thing is certain: Our community would be far less desirable without the dedication of these groups, driven only by a desire to improve our collective circumstances.
We vetted and selected 80 valuable local nonprofits and created a platform to make it easy for you to browse, donate and help make our community an even better place to live.
Three $1,000 awards sponsored by Oswald Restaurant
will be granted for:
