The mission of the Chicago Yacht Club Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) tax exempt organization, is to promote an awareness and appreciation of the nautical arts and traditions to the Chicago area community through education and activities, as all as through the support of like-minded charitable organizations. To support this mission, the Foundation offers grants in aid in three categories: Sailing Education, Regatta and Clinic Participation, and Maritime Organization Grants. Learn more about the categories and deadlines.
