We are very grateful for all those who have helped us to date but need to raise more to achieve the Club's objective of building the capacity to provide Schools team racing, which in itself will earn ongoing revenue for the Club. The cost of acquiring the 6 Pacers is some $73,000. It is the opinion of the Club that to continue and maintain our junior ranks we need to provide this program. In addition to Schools Team racing the Pacers will be used for sail training generally and for the use of members.
You will have read in the Club's eTattler of the problems with the Club's lift and the need to repair it. Donations to the Foundation via the Sailability account could be directed to these repairs.
In addition the Foundation Board would like to be in a position to provide some funding for our elite sailors to attend National and International Titles where they do not have the financial means themselves to do this. Applications would be called and a rigorous selection process would be undertaken by the Foundation Board with the support of the Club's Sailing and General Committees.
A thermometer showing the progress that we are making towards our target will be placed in the bar area. Donations are encouraged no matter how small and can be made through the office. Remember that donations made to the Foundation, which are processed through the ASF, either by the Club or directly by the donor, are tax deductible.
I would be pleased to discuss any matters pertaining to the Foundation, and other projects that you would like to support. You can call me on 0411112111 or by email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
