Venice Yacht Club
Charitable Foundation

thermometerOver 50% of students in our community are on food assistance, their families unable to provide them 3 meals a day. The problem is particularly acute in the summer when many students are unable to receive meals from schools or local food banks. In addition, 30% of third grade students in our community cannot read at grade level and 60% of children, third grade and below do not have age appropriate books in their home. These statistics imply that a large portion of youth in our community will struggle to reach their potential due to a lack of nutritional and educational support.

We are excited to announce our FY 2016 Signature Project, FEED THE HUNGER, FEED THE MIND, a two pronged project aimed at providing children and families at risk nutritional meals and literacy assistance, particularly during the summer months when the lack of support results in a regression of skills. We have set a FY 2016 goal to raise $100,000 and to receive contributions from 25 first-time donors to support this effort. More details on this project, FEED THE HUNGER, FEED THE MIND, will be provided in the coming weeks. We appreciate the continuing support of our VYC members.

Venice YC FL private club

The Venice Yacht Club was founded in 1951 and is one of the 13 original members of the Florida Council of Yacht Clubs. We are a Sarasota County private club and a favorite port of call for reciprocal members from other Florida yacht clubs. Venice is one of the few clubs that has the distinction of being right on the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW) with easy accessibility to both the Gulf of Mexico and the gulf beaches. One may bicycle downtown to "The Avenue" for some very unique shopping in its many boutiques and gift shops. The area also offers an art gallery ,Venice Theater, antique shops, library and many restaurants (bicycles are available for guests' use). The VYC provides the members awith extraordinary services and facilities. Membership includes successful business and professional people and spans all ages. The club is member controlled. Therefore, each member has a voice in the use and care of the club facilities and services. Camaraderie abounds. Amenities are extraordinary. Activities are many. Fine dining, cordial ambiance and impeccable service are the norm.

Venice Yacht Club is a member of the Florida Council of Yacht Clubs (FCYC).
