$225,000 in Scholarships and Improvements
As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the Santa Maria Fairpark Foundation, Inc., serves as the vehicle to cultivate relationships and accept charitable contributions that will foster our educational and facilities improvement initiatives. Requests for facilities improvements come to us from the Fairpark and we help wherever we can!
