When a new or existing home is sold in Seabrook, one percent of the purchase price of the house is donated to the Seabrook Community Foundation. These funds are then awarded as grants and scholarships to individuals and organizations in the North Beach and Grays Harbor communities.
Grants are provided to organizations that provide services to support these communities. This includes emergency and community services, human services such as food banks, shelter and children’s lunch programs, youth recreational activities, animal welfare, the arts, and other programs.
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 overall desire to succeed!
The Foundation board is comprised of residents of Grays Harbor County who are passionate about the North Beach and Grays Harbor communities, people, history, and overall welfare.
