2020 Endowment and Capital Campaign

The Newport Sea Base has a rich history of serving youth from greater Orange County, and beyond. For over 80 years, the Orange County Council, Boy Scouts of America, has provided the Sea Base as a learning center, a refuge, a home, to youth, as a means to not just get on the water to learn maritime skills, but to gain leadership skills and build character.

The Sea Base is seeking to raise a $5 million endowment in order to sustain operations, and in particular to keep pace with maintenance and capital needs in its harsh salt water environment. Dredging and dock repairs alone will cost upwards of $750,000 to $1,000,000, and thought those figures are large, it is vital that our docks are safe and we have water depth to dock many of our 140+ vessels. Serving 6,000 youth annually also takes a toll on infrastructure and equipment. Being able to replace equipment when needed, versus putting band-aid over band-aid, would allow our staff to focus more time and energy on quality programming.

Your support will help add the resources to ensure we run a high qualify program for decades to come.  Join us today in funding the vision for what the next 80 years could look like with a strong financial foundation to build upon.
