Fellow Members,

Our next grant cycle for the Venice Yacht Club Charitable Foundation ends on November 1. Our Committee will be meeting in November to decide how to allocate funds for the grant applications received on or before November 1. The status of our accounts as of June 30 is as follows:
  Florida Shores $2,392.68
  Gulf Coast Endowment $80,284.43
  Gulf Coast Fund $20,378.35
  Total $103,055.46

We are looking forward to seeing the improvements to the Venice Performing Arts Center Box Office for the grant we made in June.
Judy Wilcox, Jack Murphy, Joe Miller, and P/C Tony Zumbano have resigned from the Foundation Committee. Commodore Melinda Short has appointed V/C Jim DeNiro to be the Board of Director Representative. I will be working with the Commodore to enlist some new members. Please let me know if you are interested.

Our Foundation’s spending policy is to award grants in the amount of 80% of the donations received in the grant cycle. The Foundation’s 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.

Respectfully submitted,
Wayne Hall, Chair

Fellow Members,
The Venice Yacht Club Charitable Foundation Committee approved a grant request from the Venice Performing Arts Center in the amount of $18,157.00 for improvements to the outside and inside box offices. The grant is being made from the special funds raised at the Venice Performing Arts Center Gala held last October at the Club.
Our Committee made a site visit to the Venice Performing Arts Center in April and reviewed the concept of the box office improvements. These are needed improvements and the Center management’s highest priority to facilitate better usage of the facility next winter and in future years. The VYCCF will receive recognition by a plaque on the outside of the building above the outside box office and a plaque on the inside of the building above the interior box office.
Our Committee approved having a fundraiser dinner event with a Halloween theme on Friday, October 30. We will have more information in the next Currents article.
