What is it?
The Admiralty Legacy is a way for members to help the Club financially in funding capital improvements or infrastructure replacements through cash donations.
How does it work?
Any member can donate via cash, check, or credit card. The funds are deposited into a restricted account to be used as the Board identifies specific capital projects or infrastructure systems needing replacement. The first project funded by the Admiralty Legacy was the resealing of the parking lot.
Why do we need to have the Admiralty Legacy?
The Club is almost forty years old and similar to home repair and replacements, some of the Club’s systems need to be replaced or need major repair. The Board determines the priority of projects needing attention via a prioritized list. In reality, some systems are moved to the top of the list when something breaks or is about to break and is critical to the operation of the Club.
What do our dues cover?
Our dues help pay for the ongoing Club expenses such as electricity, gas, water, sewer, cable tv, internet, etc. Our dues do not pay for major capital projects.
How can I participate?
Any member can donate either in their name or if they have a business, in the business’ name, or they can donate anonymously. When their donation reaches $1,000, their name or their business’ name goes on the recognition piece (currently hanging in the downstairs bar).
Can I donate less than $1,000?
Yes, anyone can donate less than $1,000 in increments of $100. When a member’s donation reaches $1,000, their name plate is added.
Can I leave a donation to the Club in my will?
Yes, a member’s name can be added in the event of the passing of the member with the $1,000 donation. Should the donation be less than $1,000, the member who passed will be recognized in the newsletter.
Who can I contact to donate?
A member can contact one of the commodores or one of the committee members.
Commodores: Tom Fitzgerald, Cedric Niiro, or Ryan Bradley.
Committee members: Avis Berney, Bruce Brown, Virginia Cooley, Pam Kaiser, Sally Crelly, or Larry Munns.
How much has been donated?
This program commenced in 2019 and to date through the middle of March 2022, there have been twelve $1,000 donations, one donation of $500, and one donation of $200.
We would like to add more names to the recognition piece. In donating, you are helping the club. The latest name plates added since December 2021 include: Gail and J.M. Kiel, JJ and Kathy Jones, Virginia, and Craig Cooley, Lynn Kastner, Ted & Paula Mihok, and Anonymous.
Thank you to all who have chosen to help the club with their donations.
Avis Berney, Chair
