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 is The Towbes Group’s distinctive private/public fundraising program focused on environmental sustainability and community support.
The Towbes Group currently donates $25 for every residential move-in to local charities. Additionally, new residents receive a recycled, reusable grocery bag which eliminates 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 15 of the apartment communities (representing more than 2,800 rental units) the company owns in Ventura, Santa Barbara, and Santa Maria.
The Give Where You Live program benefits Future Leaders of America in Ventura, Guardian Scholars in Carpinteria/Santa Barbara/Goleta, and the Community Action Commission in Santa Maria.
Mayor of Santa Barbara
