Ocean City Yacht Club Foundation Accomplishments

The positive impacts of Ocean City Yacht Club Foundation include:

  • Need-based scholarships to allow young people to participate in the OCYC junior sailing program.
  • A grant to a public school teacher to enable their deeper understanding of teaching marine science to school children.
  • A grant to the Ocean City Yacht Club to replace the fence along the bulkhead to keep our members, guests, and junior sailors safe.
  • Funds to frame and preserve signed illustrations of world class sailing events in which OCYC members have participated.
  • A financial contribution to the Great Egg Harbor Watershed Association which educates citizens about the coastal environment and carries out projects that improve the water quality in the Great Egg Harbor watershed in which we sail, boat, swim, and fish.
  • A financial contribution to the Wetlands Institute which carries out educational and conservation projects throughout southern New Jersey.
  • A financial contribution to the Coast Guard Foundation which provides scholarships and support to Coast guardsmen and their families, specifically guardsmen from local Coast Guard Stations.   
  • A financial contribution to educational programs at US Sailing.
  • Holiday meals through the OCNJ Care Project, which was reactivated to deal with the economic hardships accompanying the COVID crisis.
  • A webinar on charitable giving, with a Wells Fargo’s philanthropic specialist.
  • A Financial Contribution to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
  • A Financial contribution to Bay Watch Scavenger Hunt involving maritime education.
  • A Financial contribution to the "Fishing for Kids" event for special-needs children sponsored by OCYC and the Ocean City Marlin and Tuna Club.

Thanks to the generosity of OCYC members, the OCYC Foundation’s first year and a half was quite productive. We established the roots of a strong organization, with the IRS formally recognizing us as a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization. In addition to setting up a solid infrastructure for a long-lasting Foundation, we have begun to advance the mission of the OCYC Foundation.

As a reminder, our mission is: to provide opportunities for OCYC to foster local excellence in amateur maritime activities and competitions; to support students in maritime related higher education; to contribute to maritime related charitable and educational organizations, and to maintain and exhibit the Foundation’s collections of artwork and other articles of historical importance and to provide educational programs on maritime history and related topics.
