Grand Prix Foundation

Grand Prix Foundation of Long Beach

The Grand Prix Foundation of Long Beach was incorporated in January of 1991 as a 501 (c)(3) publicly supported organization whose purpose is to raise funds, through a series of charitable events held in conjunction with the annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Building on the drama and fanfare surrounding the race, which annually attracts crowds in excess of 175,000, the Foundation schedules exciting events open to businesses and public participation.

Events

Race Weekend! Friday, April 17, 2015 Grand Prix Foundation Monte Carlo Night at Renaissance Hotel Long Beach features casino-style gambling from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. and includes a poker tournament. Winners vie for prizes and the Grand Prix Foundation of Long Beach and the causes it supports benefit. Local philanthropists, community supporters, business leaders and various race series drivers are invited to help raise thousands of dollars.

Race attire is welcome! Come straight from the track, if you like, relax and taste food from local restaurants including Joe Jost's famous pickled eggs and pretzels.

Tickets are $50 for the event, while tickets for the poker tournament are $75.

Beneficiaries

Found

The Foundation (Federal tax number 33-0446818) was founded as an “all-volunteer” organization and continues to operate as such. Generous support from corporate sponsors, particularly the Grand Prix Association of Long Beach and Toyota Motor Sales, USA, allows the Foundation to keep overhead to an absolute minimum. The Foundation’s activities are governed by a twelve member Board of Directors, each elected to a two-year term.

Beneficiaries are selected by a committee and members of the Board and approved by the Board of Directors. The Foundation benefits as broad a cross section of the community as possible and continually re-evaluates the needs of the community.

Scholarship Program

The Foundation, in 1997, established the annual Robert E. Leslie Memorial Scholarship program which provides a $1,500 grant to seven graduating seniors from the seven high schools in the Long Beach area. Students are selected by a panel of civic leaders and are evaluated on scholastic achievement, potential, extra curricular activities, community service and financial need.
