Renaissance Regatta Fundraiser

Renaissance Regatta, our signature fundraiser, is your opportunity to take part in celebrating all that CBC accomplishes every year. Due to COVID-19, your support is more important than ever to enable our deserving youth students to enjoy our summer camp and after-school programs.

Help us adjust course by making a donation! Typically, we host our Renaissance Regatta, which allows us to bring our entire community together under one (tent) roof. Unfortunately, COVID-19 restrictions prevent our gathering together in person this year. However, your support is just as – if not more so – important as ever. Please consider sponsoring CBC’s fundraising appeal this year, and help keep Providence’s youth on the water!

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

Rhode Island and its boating activity, like most of the rest of our country, shut down during this turbulent time. COVID-19 and our spring opening – the beginning of a limited, seasonal revenue window – arrived simultaneously. Our highly valued, school sailing partners (customers) necessarily put life on hold, working to remain healthy and vital for the future.

We need your help! Although we have 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” and update you as this current public health crisis evolves.
