We are proud to celebrate the creation of the Santa Barbara Wireless Foundation (SBWF). The Foundation is part of our 501(c)(3) public benefit corporation dedicated to developing and supporting wireless telecommunications technologies for public safety, emergency communications, community service and scientific research in the Santa Barbara region. For years, SBARC members have donated their skills and time to support partner organizations throughout Santa Barbara County. This outreach is an important part of maintaining important relationships for SBARC, allowing us continued access to coveted mountaintop communications sites and strengthening our community ties to ensure our organization’s relevance in a new era of advanced digital communications.
SBARC remains an amateur radio membership organization with SBWF as a part of the Club’s strategic outreach. SBARC members are invited to contribute to SBWF’s efforts. The Santa Barbara Wireless Foundation name and logos were designed to maximize our ability to attract funding and support from outside of the amateur radio community. This initiative will ensure the Club’s continued ability to serve those interested in the art and science of radio communications while supporting new and existing relationships for public service and emergency communications in our community.
