Davis Island Youth Sailing Foundation (DIYSF), Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) (EIN: 59-3004295 educational organization committed to support and promote the sport of sailing for the youth of Tampa Bay in an environment which encourages safety, good sportsmanship, self-reliance, and respect for authority, the community and the marine environment. The foundation is funded through donations and proceeds from our Learn-to-Sail and Continuation Sailing Programs and fund raising activities.

In 2014, the Foundation launched the DIYSF Capital Campaign to raise $100K for the purchase of new boats and equipment upgrades to our existing Opti, Club 420 fleets and power assets.  All donations are tax deductible and the Foundation will provide a donation letter to donors for any above $25.

We'd appreciate your support by making a financial donation and help the next generation of sailors have the opportunity to enjoy the great sport of sailing!!
