US Sailing Foundation

Planned Giving

Do you believe, as we do, that sailing is a journey worth taking – and a journey worth sharing? A planned gift may be the most impactful way you can strengthen the sport you love and share your passion for sailing with future generations.

You can pass the sailing experience and its important life lessons on through a legacy gift to the US Sailing Foundation. We gratefully accept the following types of planned gifts:


Wills & Bequests

Life Insurance, Retirement Plans and Asset Accounts

Gifts that live on.

Life Insurance policies and retirement plans are a simple yet powerful way to make a gift to the US Sailing Foundation. These assets, if left to individuals (other than a spouse), will be subject to income tax in addition to any applicable estate tax. With a gift to the US Sailing Foundation, 100 percent of the funds are available to support sailing.

Create a Lasting Legacy.

You can impact sailors for generations to come by making an Endowment Gift to US Sailing. You’ll create a lasting legacy and ensure that the programs you love continue far into the future. You can add to an existing Fund or establish your own restricted Endowment.
