Gifts given in memory of loved ones or friends. Friends and families may choose to give their memorial gifts to Rochester Community Sailing to help others enjoy sailing and boating learning and experiences.

RCS submits grant request proposals to groups which offer money for uses appropriate for Rochester Community Sailing. This is an ongoing process. If you know of a group which offers funds to groups such as ours, we appreciate you sharing this information with us.

We believe the growth and enjoyment of sailing will rely on the wisdom of those who have the vision to provide RCS with financial long term security by designating larger gifts through wills.
