Renaissance Regatta Fundraiser

We can’t change the wind – but we can adjust our sails…

Rhode Island, like most of the rest of our country, continues to face many challenges during this turbulent time. Although CBC had a strong 2021 summer program, COVID-19 has severely affected our spring programs – and limited, seasonal revenue window. Our highly valued, school sailing partners (customers) necessarily continue to put after-school life on hold, working to remain healthy and vital for the future.

We need your help! Although we have once again adjusted timing, plans, and have undertaken budget adjustments in expenses to offset losses in revenue, the continued support of our highly valued funding partners for grants, donations, and member fees is vital to our success. While we all juggle the many things necessary to our own health and disrupted circumstances, the sense of support, volunteerism and community strength that Community Boating Center’s founding brought to Providence, the capital of the Ocean State, has reemerged. Together, we will weather the storm. We will continue to “adjust our sails” as this crisis evolves.

Thanks to our supporters, CBC nurtures a sense of community in which the diversity of the urban environment is respected and encouraged. We need your help!
