    How Leisure World in Seal Beach is Organized and Managed

    Leisure World is owned and operated by The Golden Rain Foundation (GRF) which is a non-profit corporation. It is the sponsoring body of the Leisure World community. The GRF acts as a trustee for the Mutual Corporations who are the "landlords" of the residential property and housing in the community. The GRF engages primarily in:

    • Furnishing community facilities and providing services to housing operated on a cooperative or other basis and to the occupants of Leisure World.
    Each of the Mutual’s has an elected, non-paid Board of Directors. It also elects a representative, or two in the case of the two larger Mutual’s, to the GRF Board of Directors. The function of the GRF Board is to:
    • Set policy and give advice and consent on fiscal matters within the bounds of that policy.
    There is a full-time administrator on site to implement the directives and polices established by the GRF. The administrator supervises a staff of approximately 250 persons who are employed by the GRF in eight departments:
    • Administration
    • Accounting
    • Community Administration
    • News, Security
    • Transportation
    • Community Relations

    The GRF Board operates through nine standing committees which act in an advisory and consulting capacity. These committees are:
    • Executive
    • Finance
    • Library
