The role of the Good Neighbors program is to expand community awareness of and invite ongoing financial support for SBNC. Good Neighbors serve as ambassadors on behalf of SBNC in the community and introduce the organization and the Good Neighbors program to their circle of influence. They volunteer in support of various special events, such as hosting tours, receptions, or luncheons.

Each of our Good Neighbors makes an annual donation of $1,000 or more to SBNC. When you join us now, your donation will be doubled, thanks to a generous donor.

If you are interested in becoming a Good Neighbor, please email our development department, or call Maria Long at (805) 452-5466‬.

Good Neighbors will have access to exclusive benefits throughout the year, including:

  • An annual event giving members an opportunity to hear updates about SBNC and/or related medical issues impacting the Santa Barbara community.
  • Invitations to all SBNC events, special engagements and private guest receptions.
  • Recognition as a Good Neighbor member in printed materials and on our social media platforms.
