There are many ways you can help the Foundation
achieve its goal of changing lives through sailing.
(You can use your Paypal account,
or if you do not have one, your major credit card. Thank you!)
• Cash donations may be in the
form of Tributes and Memorials, grants and endowments, and/or bequests
for specific purposes or programs. Donations using Paypal are quick
and easy (see the Paypal link below).
• Del Rey Yacht Club members generously support the Foundation
on an annual basis through a once per year voluntary billing. Other
Santa Monica Bay yacht clubs and associations also provide valuable
• Other groups raise funds that allow the Foundation to provide
scholarships for sailing programs and support for specific projects.
• These are accepted throughout
the year based on current IRS guidelines. Much of the equipment
is refurbished (if needed) and put up for sale as soon as practical.
The funds raised from such sales are applied where the need is greatest.
• The Foundation’s “EBAY for Santa Monica Bay” program promotes
an annual clean-up and recycle program to collect equipment donations
for resale and reuse.
• An acknowledgement is promptly forwarded to the donor with
verification of the sales price for income tax purposes.
• When vessels and equipment are received that are appropriate
for use by local Junior or Racing Programs, the items are accepted
by the Foundation on their behalf to be loaned, leased or transferred
to the recipients as is appropriate. (Discuss this with our representatives.)
The Foundation works with donors to customize
their donation to suit their needs.
