The Atascadero Greyhound Foundation was originally founded in 1994 as the Greyhound Athletic Foundation to fund facilities and programs for students at Atascadero High School. It succeeded in coordinating the construction of an all-weather track, snack bar, and restrooms at Atascadero High School as part of a $1.5 million renovation.
In more recent years, the Foundation has established an annual Hall of Fame dinner, and a band festival as part of Atascadero's annual Colony Days celebration. Additionally, the Foundation oversees the annual All-Comers Track Meet, the Hares 'N' Hounds 5k event, and LIGHTHOUSE.
