Philanthropy is integral to the core business practices of The Towbes Group.
The organization is committed to giving back to the local community and helping
the environment in meaningful ways, including offering the innovative Give
Where You Live program and offering Towbes Grants.
GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE
Give Where You Live is The Towbes Group’s distinctive private/public
fundraising program focused on environmental sustainability and community
support. Please click on the logo above to read more about the program.
The Towbes Group currently donates $25 for every residential move-in to local
foodbanks. Additionally, new residents receive a recycled, reusable grocery bag
eliminating the use of 1,000 plastic bags over its lifetime.
Designed and implemented by Towbes’ residential leasing staff, the “Give
Where You Live” program encompasses all 14 of the multihousing complexes
(representing more than 2,100 rental units) the company owns in Ventura and
Santa Barbara counties.
The Give Where You Live program benefits the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County, Food Share of Ventura County and the Unity Shoppe in Santa Barbara.
In 2010, The Towbes Group donated nearly $20,000 which translated into more
than $135,000 of purchasing power because food banks purchase groceries at a
discount, allowing the food providers to buy $7 of food for every dollar
Towbes Grants support community organizations making an impact in four key
- Community and environmental stewardship
- Children's health and well-being
