Since early 2018, One805 has raised more than $2 million and distributed funds for essential equipment and services not available through state budgets.   This includes generators, vehicles and two urgently-needed mobile command centers, as well as professional counseling services for first responders.  

All funds raised benefit County Fire, City Fire, Montecito Fire, Carpinteria/Summerland Fire, City Police and the Sheriff Departments. 


“First responders care for our families, now let’s care for theirs.”

The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara has established a scholarship fund for children of first responders. The ONE805 Scholarship Fund will support first responders’ families by providing scholarships to students pursuing college, graduate, and technical school, as well as free financial aid advising. One hundred percent of donated funds will go directly to students.
