The Annual Fund


The Santa Bárbara Mission Archive-Library is funded primarily through membership, donations, and grants. Your contribution to the Annual Fund will allow us to continue to fulfill our mission to collect, preserve, and make accessible historical and cultural resources pertaining to Franciscan history and Missions and the communities with whom they interacted.


Gifts of any amount are greatly appreciated! 


Donors of unrestricted gifts of $2,500 or more receive the following benefits:

  • All the benefits of SBMAL membership for a year

  • A customized tour of SBMAL's collections for you and up to five guests

  • Invitations to exclusive events

  • Recognition on our website


You can also support our work by sponsoring an item on our Annual Fund Wish List


Contributions can be sent to Santa Bárbara Mission Archive-Library at 2201 Laguna Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93103. You may also contribute with a credit card by calling (805) 682-4713.
