The Ephraim Yacht Club is a not-for-profit community sailing center which relies in part on donations from members and others.  Please join hundreds of other EYC members and friends who have supported the EYC with donations over the years.  The EYC is a 501(c)(3) public charity, so your donation is tax-deductible.

To donate by mail, make your check payable to the
Ephraim Yacht Club and mail it to P.O. Box 331, Ephraim, WI 54211. If
the donation is in memoriam, please write that and the name on the

General Donations

General funds help support EYC operations and capital expenses.

Aaron R. Moore Sailing Scholarship Fund

The fund memorializes Aaron R. Moore, who passed away in 2008 and was a lifelong sailor and an enthusiastic sailing instructor. The fund was established in 2012 by the Moore family. This fund pays for sailing lesson scholarships for junior sailors who are year-round residents of Door County and who otherwise would not be able to afford EYC sailing lessons.

Red Hoag Sailing Scholarship Fund

The fund memorializes Red Hoag, the father of EYC member Bill Hoag, and was established by the Hoag family in 2007. This fund pays for sailing lesson scholarships for junior sailors who are year-round residents of Door County and who otherwise would not be able to afford EYC sailing lessons.

Larry Lewis Memorial Fund

The fund memorializes Larry Lewis, former EYC Commodore and sailing instructor, and was established by various donors in 2012. This fund pays for prizes for enthusiastic junior lesson participants (the “Larry Lewis Memorial Happy Camper Award”) and also funds other expenses related to the EYC’s mission of sailing education and promoting amateur sailboat racing.
