Keeping San Diego Beaches at their best through collaborative efforts, sports and empowerment.
We raise funds to do beach cleanups, maintain sports facilities, amenities and landscaping and host events to improve our beaches and implement master plans. This empowers everyone to have access to a healthy and active lifestyle.
WHY WE CHOSE TO BE A 501(c)(3) NONPROFIT
There are many benefits to having a nonprofit 501(c)(3) designation. One of the biggest reasons is to allow our donors and sponsors, to obtain a tax-deductible receipt.
As a nonprofit, we also get discounts when putting on events and other tax breaks that are listed here:
Exemption from Federal income tax;
Possible exemption from state income, sales, and employment taxes;
Reduced postal rates;
Exemption from Federal unemployment tax; and.
Because we want to be completely transparent in our activities, we have provided a separate page to help you know exactly where we are in our process to become an official 501(c)(3), where the money goes and how we run the nonprofit. Visit our page dedicated to these inquiries at Public Reporting and Transparency.
We aspire to collaborate with like-minded people, community groups and corporations who love the beach as much as we do. With this support, we can garner enough to stabilize our nonprofit so that individuals can choose the projects they give to and see the impact of their donations. Our activities and programs are built around empowering kids and adults to build friendships, a sense of community and a health in body, mind and soul for life.
