Consider A Gift
The DYC clubhouse needs your help! Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Detroit Yacht Club Foundation this year. Doing so will help us restore and preserve this historic clubhouse building.
The building is nearly 100 years old and has significant repair and restoration. This will help in our march towards the building's centennial celebration in 2023. Our current priority is restoration of the Natatorium (the indoor pool and surrounding area), while continuing to address water intrusion and mechanical and foundation needs.
In 2011, the clubhouse was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This honor reflected what we already knew: the home of the DYC is a grand and special building that serves members, their families and guests, and the community well. To restore and preserve this legacy is the reason we formed the Detroit Yacht Club Foundation, a public charity approved by the IRS to accept tax-deductible donations.
As funds become available, the Foundation’s independent Board of Trustees manage and control the use of your donations to assure they are focused firmly on clubhouse restoration and preservation.
Your tax-deductible contribution can make a real difference in preserving this landmark building so it can be used and enjoyed for decades to come. To learn more about the Foundation, refer to the Frequently Asked Questions. Review the giving recognition levels on the pledge form before completing it and making your pledge and initial payment. If you don't want to make a pledge today, you can donate, or set up a recurring monthly donation using the button on the right. If you have any questions or would like to discuss a special donation or bequest, please call the DYC Foundation at (313) 757-5240 or email us. Thank you very much for your support.
