Ocean City Yacht Club Foundation


The mission of the OCYC Foundation is to bring boating, education and community together.

As the charitable arm of the Ocean City Yacht Club, we are committed to preserve the maritime character of Ocean City and encourage responsible interaction with the Great Egg Harbor Bay. We strive to support marine and maritime education programs, as well as new initiatives to achieve our mission.

“We have a strong and engaged board, a vibrant and growing number of volunteers, and a meaningful and well-received set of community programs.” – Dr. Brad Jungels, 2020 Chairman
