OLD-Donations and Membership

We want to welcome you to San Diego Beach Improvement Group, where we help create great experiences at the beach! Since 2002 Laura Hendrickson, our founder, has been organizing and raising money to support the sports courts (beach volleyball and basketball) at South Mission Beach. We take care of beach volleyball courts by painting the poles, replacing nets, lines, cranks, poles and doing general maintenance like coordinating with the City of San Diego to come in with tractors to fill in and flatten the dug out playing areas. For the basketball court, we have repaired the center crack, resurfaced the court and replaced backboards over the years. We work closely with the City of San Diego to make sure everyone has a great time playing sports and being active at the beach and we do our best to support the City in their efforts to keep the beach clean and safe.

Volleyball Courts: General fundraising for the courts will happen as part of our beach clean ups. We'll be doing the cleanups in the morning and then have a BBQ and fundraiser in the afternoon from 12-3pm. To support our volleyball courts, please use the donation buttons below or see payment options below.

This is a massive project and will take a significant amount of donations to complete. Once we have the money the job will take approximately a month to complete. We would love to have a basketball association help us put on a 3-on-3 or HORSE tournament to help us raise these funds. If you or someone you know would like to get involved, please contact Laura Hendrickson at 619-888-6743 / email: sandiegobig@san.rr.com. See payment options below to make donations and contribute to this project.

We also do joint ventures with other non-profits like I Love a Clean San Diego for beach clean ups. Clean up dates: 4/27/19 and September (TBA) See our Facebook Page for details on how to join these events: facebook.com/SanDiegoBIG
