What We Do
For over 50 years, the community has witnessed Santa Barbara Beautiful extending its hand in support of community projects with an ongoing commitment to beautification.
Commemorative Plaque Program
Community Beautification Grants
Santa Barbara Beautiful has a history of supporting the development of local beautification projects accessible to the public—often current or future local icons—and sponsoring important arts and culture events.
We have supported many projects over the years as diverse as the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden Campbell Bridge Restoration; Tiny Libraries; Pianos on State Street; I Madonnari Italian Street Festival; Santa Barbara Airport (SBA) Terminal Visitor Entrance Medallion; East Beach Volleyball Courts upgrade, and coming soon the new Granada Plaza Mural.
Schools and Scholarships: A Commitment to the Future
Santa Barbara Beautiful actively participates in educational outreach through the Learning Tree Program.
We Support higher education by funding annual scholarships to the SBCC Foundation for Environmental Horticulture and the Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara for Architecture and Landscape.
