Towbes Foundation Awards $2,500 Grant to Santa Barbara School of Squash

The Towbes Foundation recently awarded a $2,500 grant to the Santa Barbara School of Squash, a 501(c)(3) youth enrichment nonprofit.

Funding will be used to support academic tutoring and educational excellence programming for the underprivileged youth participants of SBSOS.

“We are extremely grateful for this generous award. This charitable support from the Towbes Foundation shows a great commitment to education in our community,” said Debbie Brown, executive director of SBSOS. “This funding helps make the future brighter for our youth, and doubles our determination to see them succeed academically.”

The Santa Barbara School of Squash is a member of the National Urban Squash and Education Association, a nonprofit founded in 2005 to promote squash and education among urban youth. SBSOS serves underprivileged, minority youth from Santa Barbara, and inspires them to excel through a program combining academics, the sport of squash and community service.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
