Venice Yacht Club Charitable Foundation

Charting a course to a better community…

The Venice Yacht Club Charitable Foundation mission is to do the most good for the most people at risk by supporting and enhancing the cumulative goodwill of the Venice Yacht Club membership to service the needs of our community. Grants are made in support of the broad categories of (1) youth boating, (2) health and education, (3) veterans and active military, (4) the environment and (5) civic improvement, and are given to charities within the area from which the Venice Yacht Club draws it membership.

A New Year: A Great Time to Invest in our Community

Our committee is at work, focusing on the needs of the South County region—work that truly is an investment in young families, children at risk, and returning veterans.

All of us are investors for the future. We invest in our families, our financial well-being, and the community that sustains us. As the VYC Charitable Foundation, we have built an investment road-map over the last few years for which we are recognized. Two years ago, we laid out a footprint in South County with key contributions to Education and Nutrition. In 2017 we maintained that commitment and added attention to homelessness among young families and children. We will not waver from that path. We are also reminded that the privileges that enable us to give of ourselves were hard won and defended by our men and women in uniform, many of whom pay a price to protect our way of life. We are re-enforcing our traditional support of returning veterans and the active military.

In 2018 we are announcing our new Signature Project, “N-VESTNutrition, Veterans, Education, and ShelTer… Investing in our Community.” The programs we support are capable, and our grants deliver new opportunities to those they serve. We are “N-VEST-ers” in their lives and our future together. We are known as partners in the battle for a better tomorrow; this is our legacy.

We are so grateful for your support; none of our achievements in giving are possible without our members and the tireless efforts of our VYCCF committee. In 2018, let’s N-VEST together!
