The spirit of giving is rooted deep within Seabrook and flourishes within the Seabrook Community Foundation, a non-profit organization created by town founders, Casey and Laura Roloff.
Each year, funds from the foundation support the local area through donations toward projects and scholarships. The foundation is funded by home sales in Seabrook where one percent of each sale is awarded to the foundation with additional funds provided by other donors.
The foundation is managed by a board of directors who are passionate about the wellbeing and growth of the local community. All of the board members live either in Seabrook, or the surrounding county of Grays Harbor.
