We have four types of programs, all designed to benefit the communities we serve. These programs are only possible through the generous support of our community, and through our fundraising activities, grant funding, and the tireless support of our Board Members.
As described above, the Summer Youth Program is the flagship project of the Seafarers Foundation. Since 2008 the Foudation has led this important initiative, building on the previous work in this area of the Seafarers Yacht Club, Inc. The Summer Youth Program is designed to save the lives of our children through water safety.
The Seafarers Foundation regularly solicits experts in finance, healthcare and other topics to provide free community lectures at the Seafarers Yacht Club clubhouse. Previous topics have included: personal finance, social security benefits, medicare benefits, reverse mortgages, and long-term care insurance.
Thanksgiving for seniors
Each year, the Seafarers Foundation provides a complete Thanksgiving Dinner for Senior Citizens who may be away from their families, indigent, or persons with disabilities. The meal, held at the clubhouse of the Seafarers Yacht Club, has had great success, thanks to the heartfelt support of our community.
annual Health fair
Each year, the Seafarers Foundation sponsors an Annual Health Fair, that includes free screening for diseases that disproportionately affect the African American and Latino communities, including high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, breast and prostate cancer, and others.
