Gretchen Hewlett has lived in Santa Barbara for 45 years, having moved to town to attend UC Santa Barbara. Her career in development began in 1994 as a member of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History Development Department where she covered diverse bases: annual fund, gifts processing, and donor relations, and oversaw the museum’s nascent planned giving efforts. Finding development both comfortable and challenging, she moved on to the Santa Barbara City College Foundation in 1998, where she’s happily raised funds to help students of all ages reach their educational goals.
