KSBY is partnering with Halpin Leadership Industries, The Manse on Marsh and Idler’s Home for the 5th annual Your Favorite Charity contest.

We are looking for your nominations for those locally-based, local-serving charities that you think are most deserving. We want to help them out with a cash prize!

From January 21 through February 3, 2019 we will take your nominations of qualified 501c3 public charity organizations whose good work supports San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties.

We are looking for the best and brightest in the categories of Arts & Culture, Education & Youth Development, Environment & Animals, Health, Human Services & Community Development.

To nominate your organization click here for the form. Please note that only one nomination form per organization is required and suggested, so please make sure if you are submitting that you are doing so on behalf of the non-profit.

After the nomination period closes on February 3rd, a distinguished panel of judges will work hard to qualify the non-profits and select a top 20 list.

And then for the real fun! Check back between February 18 to March 1 and vote for ‘Your Favorite Charity.’

Four lucky winners will take home $1,000 each on March 6, 2019 and one very lucky winner will walk away with the grand prize of $10,000 and the title of Your Favorite Charity.

What qualifies an organization?

The organization must be based in San Luis Obispo or Santa Barbara County as well as serve that area through their charitable work. The organization must also have a 501c3 status with the IRS with a charitable focus, not advocacy.
