Since 2003 Run Seal Beach® has given $1,808,064 back to our community
Run Seal Beach® is a non-profit organization whose charter is to raise funds and awareness for recreation or fitness programs or services to benefit the greater Seal Beach Community including Rossmoor and Los Alamitos. Since 2003, RSB has given back more than $1,800,000 to our community, representing more than 118 organizations through the years, touching thousands of residents, students, servicemen and those who are served by our community.
The non-profit charter has been in existence since 1999, although the organization has sponsored runs for 45 years. The race has continued to grow in its attendance and contributions each year and all the net proceeds are given back to the local communities primarily in the form of grants.
In 2011, we established a portion of our funds to be distributed through Director’s Awards. These are awards are at the sole discretion of the Run Seal Beach® Board of Directors and cannot be applied for.
Run Seal Beach® is planned, managed and executed 100% by volunteers, with no salaries drawn for any administration so that 100% of available proceeds are given back to the community each year.
Any non-profit organization meeting the eligibility criteria as stated in our RUN SEAL BEACH GRANT PROGRAM GUIDELINES may apply for funding. Requests are awarded annually. Due to the number of requests received, not all applicants will receive grants. Applications and/or organizations that do not meet our criteria are not included in our Grant Review process.
