Your Venice Yacht Club Charitable Foundation is having a special dinner recognition event on Thursday, April 10, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. All donors to the Foundation have been invited. We are going to discuss plans for the upcoming year. Sandra Frank, Executive Director of All Faiths Food Bank, will give us a report on Sprout and their plans for this year.

We are hosting the Stan Wright Memorial Golf Tournament at Jacaranda Country Club on May 1. The cost is $75.00 per golfer and includes breakfast and lunch. Please sign up at the Jacaranda Pro Shop or call them at (941) 493-5010. The Yacht Club has reciprocal privileges with Jacaranda Country Club. Many of our members are not aware of this. Jacaranda is co-sponsoring the event. The net proceeds will be donated to the Venice Yacht Club Charitable Foundation in Stan's memory. Please sign up to play or consider buying a tee sponsorship sign for $100.00. Non-golfers are invited to join the group for lunch.

We received a request from All Faiths Food Bank to have a food collection bin at the Club to help support the Campaign Against Summer Hunger. Unfortunately, there is no proper place at the Club for a food reception bin. The Committee encourages members to donate food to the All Faiths Food Bank at the Goodwill pick-up locations.

I am pleased to report that the Venice Yacht Club Charitable Foundation currently has $110,636.00 on deposit with the Gulf Coast Community Foundation. We have received donations during the grant cycle in the amount of $19,775.00. Of this amount, 80% ($15,820.00) will be available for grants at the end of the grant cycle ending on May 1.

Our Foundation spending policy is to award grants in the amount of 80% of the donations we receive. The policy provides that grants will be given to local charities 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.

Fellow Members,


The Venice Yacht Club Charitable Foundation is planning a donor recognition event to be held on Thursday, April 10, from 6:00–8:00 p.m. All who have made donations to the Foundation are invited. A special invitation will be mailed out shortly.

I am pleased to report that the Venice Yacht Club Charitable Foundation currently has $108,104.29 on deposit with the Gulf Coast Community Foundation. We have received donations during the current grant cycle in the amount of $16,350. Our grant cycle began November 1 and will end on May 1.
Your Foundation Committee is currently working to develop a special project and fundraising goals for 2014. I am proud to report that so far we have had 118 members of the Club make donations to the Foundation. We are hoping to create good opportunities whereby we can increase this number.

Our Foundation spending policy is to award at least 80% of the grants we receive. The Foundation spending policy provides that grants will be given 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.
We are planning a special Foundation fundraising event to be held on Saturday, October 11. This is being coordinated with the Entertainment Committee. More details will follow in the future.

Respectfully submitted,
Wayne Hall, Chairperson
