CAMPAIGN

The Annapolis Yacht Club Foundation has developed a strategic plan to raise a $5,000,000 endowment by 2028. The AYC Foundation Velocity Campaign was kicked off when the Roesch Family committed $500,000 as a match to the first $500,000 in donations this year. The Campaign underscores the Foundation’s commitment to providing access to the mid-Chesapeake Bay and supporting a diverse range of sailors through its grants and scholarships.

We believe that sailing can be a vehicle to a better life by opening doors for people, young and old, that may not have otherwise been opened. Absolutely anyone and everyone who wants to learn to sail should be provided that opportunity regardless of their circumstances. - Maggie & Marty Roesch

GET INVOLVED

Your donation, however large or small, will go a long way to helping the Foundation raise the $500K to meet the Roesch family’s generous match. There are many residents who do not have access to the water.  Please consider a contribution to the AYC Foundation Velocity Campaign and be part of a lasting legacy for the local community and across the mid-Chesapeake Bay.

I would not be able to afford to sail without AYCF for both my high school sailing and summer sailing at the West River Sailing Club. I love sailing so much because it is so freeing and when you are on a boat the possibilities are endless. - Sarah, age 14
