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 for 2017 must be received no later than June 30, 2017, to be considered.
