Ocean City Yacht Club Foundation Accomplishments 2020-2021


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.


In the last six months, the OCYC Foundation has:

  • Donated holiday meals through the OCNJ Care Project
  • Sponsored two in-need junior sailors so they could participate in the OCYC junior sailing program.
  • Hosted a webinar on charitable giving, with Wells Fargo’s philanthropic specialist J. Weiner.
  • Provided funds to replace the OCYC fence along the bulkhead to provide greater safety to junior sailors, OCYC members and guests. This was accomplished thanks to the generosity of our members.
  • Made a financial contribution to the Great Egg Harbor River Watershed Association. This organization monitors the water quality of the river whose waters mingle with the sea to form the Great Egg Harbor Bay on which we sail and power boat.
