As a funding organization, Erie Yacht Club Foundation sometimes is made aware of a need for a significant contribution to jump-start a program or organization, or to help dramatically increase a program’s impact. These needs do not exist on an annual basis, and are usually one-time contributions on Erie Yacht Club Foundation’s part. Contributions to Erie Yacht Club Foundation’s endowment enable the Erie Yacht Club Foundation to be able to exercise it’s judgement to fund these extraordinary, vital requests to nurture and expand the community that cherishes and stewards the Erie area.In time, endowment income will provide a substantial percentage of the budget for annual grants. Endowments gifts to the Foundation are truly the gifts that keep on giving. An endowment is forever. Endowment contributions can be made through a variety of financial mechanisms, including estate planning, and can be made at any time. For more information about endowment contributions, please contact the Erie Yacht Club Foundation at
