The Island's seasonal housing shortage and escalating rental costs are a major concern to Nantucket Community Sailing. As a result, our board has taken decisive action to purchase property and build a dormitory to house our seasonal sailing instructors.
Nantucket Community Sailing has made tremendous progress on our capital campaign, Homeport. Our new dormitory has cleared HDC and Planning Board approval, and thanks to the generous support of our friends, board, and advisors we've raised just over $1 million! We started construction in June 2018.
NCS would like to say a huge thank you to the Schmidt family for their generous matching grant that accelerated progress towards our goal! Their match inspired others to support and donate by giving $2, up to $250,000, for every new $1 in gifts and pledges. Thank you!
We now ask friends and families in our sailing classes for their support to help us finish strong! Our goal is to reach $1.4M in gifts and pledges so that we can construct the dormitory without jeopardizing our financial stability, and have our Homeport ready for occupancy for Summer 2019. Any gift, no matter how large or small, is important and much appreciated.We hope for our dormitory to honor all our NCS families, and we hope that your family will join us in this strategic initiative.
