Since the early 1990s, the SYC Foundation has offered financial assistance to individuals and programs in an effort to ensure that the next generation loves being on the water.


Each year the SYC Foundation donates approximately $50,000 to about 20 deserving recipients, half of which goes to supporting national level competitors. The size of grants awarded depends on the size of the program and/or need, but typically grants are between $100 and $5,000.


The SYC Foundation supports a broad range of educational, training and competitive endeavors. Whether itís for a program geared toward educating youth about the science of Puget Sound or a program in need of funds to support training or sending a competitor or team to a special event, the SYC Foundation wants to help. Grant applications are due on the 10th of each month. (Grants are not reviewed during the months of July, August or December).

To apply for an SYC Foundation grant, review your project, program or event to confirm that it meets our mission, review all deadlines and other instructions, and download the appropriate grant application.
