A cornerstone of Investec's success has been the trust over the years it's built with the local Santa Barbara community. This trust has grown from Investec's pledge to work with local government and civic leaders to develop and manage properties in a manner that supports the greater goals of the community.

This trust also has evolved from Investec's genuine spirit of giving. Since its founding in 1983, Investec has been actively involved with numerous nonprofit organizations to the betterment of the Santa Barbara area.

Investec and our employees annually support various charities, local sports teams and schools. The organizations we support include: Storytellers preschool "Adopt a Family" at Christmas time, Santa Barbara Food Bank at Thanksgiving, Direct Relief International, Dream Foundation, Foresters Baseball Team and many other nonprofit organizations and charities throughout the Santa Barbara area.
