Grassini Family Vineyards will double your gift through December 11th!
Every year we host our "Grassini Gives Back" fundraiser, an event to raise funds for a local non-profit organization by donating proceeds and matching funds raised. Despite the difficulties of these last few years, we remain committed to hosting this annual event! As our 2022 beneficiary, we've chosen Community Health Centers of the Central Coast (CHC), a non-profit network of community health centers serving residents of the Central Coast. The mission of CHC is "to enhance the health status of all people in the Central Coast of California, with special emphasis on the medically under-served, by providing accessible, affordable, comprehensive and quality healthcare services, through well trained professional staff, in strategically located health centers."
This year's Grassini Gives Back event commences on November 12th at the Santa Barbara Wine Auction, where we will will match the first $25,000 of donations made that evening, for a total goal of $50,000!
If you're unable to attend the auction, not to worry - there are still multiple ways to give!
1. Make an online donation
Every donation on this website up to $35,000 will be matched by the Grassini Family Foundation, with a goal of raising an additional $70,000.
2. Donate by check
Please make checks out to: Community Health Centers of the Central Coast

3. Donate in person
If you'd rather donate in person, you are welcome to visit our tasting room in downtown Santa Barbara (24 El Paseo, Santa Barbara, CA), where we will have donation slips and envelopes available to mail. While you're there, enjoy a wine tasting - we're offering complimentary wine tastings with proof of donation to CHC!
These donations will be MATCHED! If we achieve our goal, a grand total of $120,000 will be donated to help the CHC continue to provide quality healthcare for agricultural workers all across the Central Coast.
History of Grassini Gives Back:
Thanks to the incredible generosity of the local Santa Barbara community, Grassini Family Vineyards has raised more than $650,000 over the last ten years for some very deserving local charities.
In 2021, we were thrilled to partner with the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation, an incredible non-profit with a mission to "transform lives and build a kinder and more inclusive future." The foundation provides practical family support, fund research, and they are in the process of building the first inclusive playground in Santa Barbara. They work to inspire courage, foster inclusion and create a kinder world around the globe. Through the generosity of our community, we were able to raise more than $150,000 for this incredible cause. Thank you to everyone who donated and showed your support!
