Our Founder Michael Towbes created the Anniversary Grants℠ program to broaden our bank’s commitment to the communities we serve and to ensure each of the bank’s associates, now almost 231 strong, has a direct voice in the direction of our corporate giving. And for the last 26 years, our associates have jumped at the chance to show their support for the organizations that mean so much to them.
Each year, we celebrate our anniversary by honoring 10 local nonprofit agencies - all hand-selected by Montecito Bank & Trust associates. Please join us in congratulating the 2019 Anniversary Grants class. Our community would not be the vibrant place it is without these organizations and their dedicated teams. Thank you for your tireless work helping to make the local communities thrive!
