Grants & group info


The Long Beach Neighborhood Foundation (LBNF) is committed to making the annual Wrigley River Run & Tadpole Trot a premier event and a source of pride for the City of Long Beach, as well as our race sponsors.

The LBNF is a 501c3 nonprofit organization committed to organizing and sponsoring athletic events and programs in Long Beach that promote community involvement, education, tolerance, and a healthy non-violent lifestyle, particularly among the City’s at-risk youth.

LBNF is planned, managed and executed 100% by volunteers, with no salaries drawn for administration so 100% of available proceeds are given back to the community each year.

Any organization with a total of twenty or more participants and/or volunteers may qualify to receive an LBNF Grant. Please click HERE for complete WRR Grant Program Information. All applications must be received no later than June 30th, to be considered.
