Grants Awarded to Date:
$129,206


Fellow Members,
Your hardworking Venice Yacht Club Foundation Committee met on August 13 to work out the details for our fundraiser for the Venice Performing Arts Center to be held on October 11. Our committee now consists of Merle Graser, John Moore, Jack Murphy, Melinda Short, Judith Wilcox, and Commodore Bill Dowling as ex-officio. Karen Hall is chairman of the "Music of the Night Gala" event. Tickets are $125. We are promoting this to Club members and the general public. $50 of the $125 ticket price will be deductible as a charitable contribution.
The Foundation Committee voted to dedicate the event proceeds to a special fund to promote, support and enhance the performing, visual and fine arts programs at the new Venice Performing Arts Center. We are still working on the details of the fund and will provide more specific examples of grant possibilities. We are working on this with the Venice Performing Arts Center Advisory Committee and the Gulf Coast Community Foundation. This is a great opportunity for our Club to get good publicity and also to support the new Venice Performing Arts Center.

Respectfully submitted,
Wayne Hall, Chairperson

Fellow Members,
I was sorry to learn that Jerry Jarrett passed away on May 28, 2014. Jerry was an early Foundation committee member and a great source of Foundation knowledge. Jerry was a very accomplished individual and had an amazing philanthropic background. His advice and counsel will be missed on the Foundation. We have many talented people here at the Venice Yacht Club.

The Foundation is starting a new six-month grant cycle which ends on November 1. We currently have $7,840 available for this grant cycle which we hope to increase to $20,000 to $30,000 with a successful fundraising effort.

The committee has selected the new Venice High School Performing Arts Center as our signature project for this year. The Performing Arts Center is projected to have a grand opening in November.

SAVE THE DATE: We are planning a fundraising party for the Center to be held on October 11 at the Venice Yacht Club. We are working on a program of entertainment that will involve four or five different short performances by various groups that will be using the new Performing Arts Center.

Respectfully submitted,
Wayne Hall, Chairperson
