    The Charitable Foundation, a unique arm of Berkshire Hathaway, recently donated $2,000 to United Way of Santa Barbara County to help support the Goleta Literacy Partnership, which provides literacy tools and techniques to students in every school in Goleta Union School District.

A committee of donors reviews proposals received from nonprofit organizations and recommends grant awards. The Charitable Foundation has exceeded 5 million dollars in grants since its inception, according to a long-time donor and volunteer.
