About Our Foundation
The Coral Ridge Yacht Club Sailing & Watersports Foundation, Inc. is a Florida non-profit, charitable foundation established by the Coral Ridge Yacht Club at the request of those members wanting to create a sailing program for our community’s youth, together with fostering watersports of all kinds. The Foundation has received from the Internal Revenue Service its 501(c)(3) federal tax exemption.
The Foundation to date has raised its funding from individual contributions and through fund raising activities like the annual charity event “Party for a Purpose”. The Foundation will continue to increase its fund-raising activities by holding additional events, as well as accepting donations of cash and personal property such as boats and cars.
The Foundation’s contributions have been used to establish a permanent location on the Club property for the Foundation’s sailing and scuba activities including hiring a sailing instructor, acquiring additional boats and establishing an endowment.
