Funds & Grants


Sails Up 4 Cancer is extremely proud of its Spinnaker Fund. This Fund has been specifically tailored to individuals and families who are suffering financial hardship as a result of the loss of income due to their struggles with cancer. Sails Up realizes that the last thing a cancer patient needs is additional stress as a result of this predicament. There are not many places to turn for assistance and Sails Up is proud to help fill this void. If you wish, Sails Up would like to encourage you to visit for more information on the Spinnaker Fund. Sails Up 4 Cancer is a small organization and can’t promise that it can solve all financial woes, but it will do whatever it can based on funds available and needs.


The SU4C Regatta is a unique sailing event that combines the joy of boating with the important task of raising money to fight all types of cancers.

Our goals are to raise funds to support the education, prevention, care, and research in all types of cancer.

Skippers register their boats and recruit their friends and colleagues to help crew and raise funds. Skippers and crew members seek donations from friends, family, co-workers and employers to sponsor their boat. SU4C seeks national and local event sponsors who are willing to actively support SU4C’s mission statement with sponsor dollars.


Sails Up 4 Cancer has been able to assist many local cancer care centers such as Hospice organizations, our local Cancer care hospital, children afflicted with cancer, and both individuals and families struggling financially while battling cancer.

If you wish, Sails Up would like to encourage your organization to apply for one of our grants. Institutions may apply for grants with the emphasis on needs and ear mark exactly what the funds will be used for. Evidence of the use of funds will be required within a specified time frame. Cancer patients and families may apply for grants through our Spinnaker Fund.
