BUILDING COMMUNITY THROUGH IMPACT INVESTING
Sustainable Change Alliance promotes activities and endeavors that support impact investing.
[impact investing: the use of investment capital to achieve positive social and environmental outcomes alongside financial returns]
We believe impact investing is a powerful way to do well and do good at the same time.
We believe in the importance of community, particularly our community of Santa Barbara. We believe that change must come largely from the community upwards.
We are dedicated to thinking globally and acting locally.

"There is something about learning a new interest, expertise, or passion that makes life fascinating. The friends at Sustainable Change Alliance have a broad and deep perspective on what matters in this world and in this life. Great repartee, conversations, engagement, and a chance to change the world for the better... does not get much better than this!"
— John Glanville
"I'm grateful for the opportunity to join the Sustainable Change Alliance in their important discussion regarding the future of sustainable business practices and investments in our communities that are beginning to recover from recent natural disasters. The Central Coast has long been on the forefront of environmentalism, helping found the movement itself. I welcome the chance to reaffirm our commitment to protecting and conserving our planet and addressing the very real threats of climate change.”
