FUNDS – Target your gift

This is our largest endowed fund. Named in honor of Edgar Cato’s racing yachts, the Hissar Fund’s proceeds go toward fleet replacement and other capital needs.

Varsity Dinghy and Varsity Offshore Team’s travel expenses exceed the allotted budget through the Athletic department each year. The Walker fund, named in honor of our teams and the Colleges first All-American go’s toward travel.

Provides the team with immediate use funds for training, gear, etc. This is the program’s most flexible account and is used to cover any overages and expenses that don’t fit neatly into another category.

Provides funds to directly maintain and improve our docks and facility.

This fund was created in 2021 to support the offshore team’s boat maintenance and special projects related to Offshore Team specific needs.  

Mary Ann Donaldson Hay grew up sailing near Crab Bank where the Dinghy Team practices and competes regularly on boats that her father and uncle designed and built together.  This endowed fund was created as a memorial to Mary Ann in an effort to support the Women’s Sailing Team.  We are proud that our Women’s team won it’s 3rd National Championship in 2021 shortly after this funds establishment.  

CofC Sailing is a resource for the entire community.
