WINDSTAR CHARITABLE FOUNDATION


Among the core values of Windstar is “Stewardship of the Surrounding Community."  In support of that value we are proud to present our weekend of fun and friendship to raise money to help kids at risk in our Bayshore community. Since 2008, we have distributed over $700,000 in grants to area charities such as Shadowlawn Elementary School, The Boys and Girls Club of Collier County, Avalon Elementary School, Literacy Volunteers of Collier County, The Harry Chapin Food Bank and The Shelter for Abused Women and Children. 


    

 


Windstar Gives Back

Windstar Gives Back is an event run by and for Windstar members that raises money for area charities serving kids at risk in the Bayshore community. Since 2008, we have raised and given away over $700,000 to organizations such as Avalon Elementary School, Shadowlawn Elementary School, The Boys and Girls Club of Collier County, The Harry Chapin Food Bank and The Shelter for Abused Women and Children.

Windstar Gives Back is held over a weekend in November and includes fishing, tennis and golf events. The fishing event is generally held on a Friday. The tennis event, which involves both member play as well as professional exhibitions, takes place on Sunday and is followed by a cookout and party on the Keewaydin Terrace open to all club members. A golf Pro-Am, in which club members are paired with areas club professionals, is held on Monday, following which participants and interested club members enjoy a cocktail reception, awards ceremony and silent auction.
 
All monies raised go to the Windstar Club Charitable Foundation, Inc., which has been granted 501(c)(3) status under the Internal Revenue Code. Club members propose local charities that support area kids for grants. The Foundation board, made of club members, evaluates the grant applications to ensure that each applicant is a 501(c)(3) organization in good standing and that its programs will benefit kids at risk in the Bayshore area.
