George Briggeman Jr. Dives into Helping the Community in Los Alamitos

In 1993 Briggeman industries was named Los Alamitos business of the year.

In 1998 George Briggeman Junior founded the Los Alamitos aquatic foundation. This organization serves as the fund-raising arm for the US Olympic water facility located at the joint forces training base in Los Alamitos California.

Aquatic Center Pool Los Alamitos
It also serves as a community pool for the municipalities that comprise western Orange County. Mr. Briggeman is proud to serve as chairman of this great organization and to be part of the facility where over 30,000 children have learned to swim over the years.

In 1998 George Briggeman Jr. created the Los Alamitos aquatic foundation with his initial contribution of $150,000. He then went on to lead fundraising efforts that would eventually raise well over $500,000.

George Briggeman Jr. and his father have been very generous in their giving to community causes, from the Pool at the Base to veterans and school causes throughout our town.  I wish every business person in this town were half as generous as Mr. Briggeman.

George Briggeman Jr. and his father have done a lot of good here over the years and have been contributing their best to the community causes of Los Alamitos.

    Mr. Briggeman is showing the way! He is better than any politician because with his initiatives, he was able to provide facilities for the people of Los Alamitos and Western Orange County. Now we have to bear this in mind when we vote! Go for candidates that serve our interests and not theirs!

  12. George says:

    I normally bring my kids to swimming pools to spend quality time with them. Sometimes i let them swim on their own and relax with my wife.

  13. Pyro says:

    I realize that people here are busy commenting on random stuff. If that makes you happy then be it. Sorry I just find it strange that a topic about charity has more comments about stuff than the topic.

  14. dazzler says:

    If ever my kids need swimming lessons I will take this to consideration, Swimming is almost a vital skill these days and here you will learn and help to boot.

    This is what you call a gift that keeps on giving. Here we have a man who contributed a swimming pool. It’s not a one-time use kind of donation. It has helped generations of children learn how to swim. And this kids probably even dreamed of becoming Olympians too. Good job Mr. Briggeman!

  17. Janina says:

    May God bless this man and his family. We hear lots of generous people on every community but few can have a lasting impact. The people of Los Alamitos are very thankful to the generations of Briggeman who helped shape the community.

    TO the author of this Thank you for this story. Look at that guys this man spends his time helping rather than to look good.

    Spreading this endeavor on sites like these can really boost up the recall of this foundation hence more funds, I urge support guys support these men for it can change not just the beneficiaries but yours as well.

  22. Kathy says:

    I can certainly see why Briggeman Industries was named business of the year in 1993. Giving back to the community shows so much character. It’s amazing how many children have learned to swim because of this generosity.

    May he raise more funs to help the kids. I would urge people to go to this pool or swimming class each dollar is for a good cause so why not

  24. Venancio says:

    I have been a community swimming coach for the past 30 years, and I can say that having something like this brings people together, especially the kids. Ours is not Olympic size so when children outgrow the facility they usually train in their schools. To the Briggeman family, thank you for this great contribution to the sport!

  25. Amapola says:

    To whom much is given, much is expected. I wish more rich people would be like the Briggeman family. I am from a nearby city and I drive past Los Alamitos every now and then. It’s good to know that people help out each other in this beautiful city.
