Newport show donates to Coast Guard Foundation

The Coast Guard Foundation was named the official charitable partner of the Newport International Boat Show this year.

In terms of direct benefits to boaters, the foundation supports the Coast Guard Auxiliary, the volunteer arm of the service. But the Stonington, Conn.-based foundation also provides education, support and relief to Coast Guard members and their families and cadets at the Coast Guard Academy.

It funds recreation and family-oriented facilities and supports education and morale programs at Coast Guard bases and on ships around the nation. In times of loss, it offers financial relief to Coast Guard families who lose their possessions in natural disasters. When Coast Guard families lose a loved one in the line of duty, the foundation provides scholarship and relief funds to support them during their most trying times.

“Thank you to the Newport International Boat Show for its generous support of our organization and for selecting the Coast Guard Foundation as this year’s charitable partner,” Coast Guard Foundation COO Brad Sisley said when accepting a check for $1,000. “We are thankful and we are honored to be part of this showcase because it gives us an opportunity to shine a bright light on the heroic work the Coast Guard does every day right here in Newport and throughout the country.”
