Each time a home is bought or sold in Seabrook, one percent of the purchase price of the house is donated to the Seabrook Community Foundation. These funds are awarded as scholarships and grants to individuals and organizations in the North Beach and Grays Harbor communities.
Scholarships are awarded to individuals wishing to continue their education at a college, university or vocational institute. Individuals must show promise of success based on their past academic record, plan for the future, job history and other factors.
Grants are provided to North Beach and Grays Harbor organizations the support their communities. This support includes emergency and community services, human services such as food banks, shelter and children’s lunch programs, animal welfare, youth recreational activities, the arts and other programs.
The Foundation board is comprised of residents of Grays Harbor County and Seabrook homeowners who are passionate about the people, history, culture, and welfare of the North Beach community and Grays Harbor County.
