Giving with AutoNation

Grapevine Sailing Club and Grapevine Community Sailing Education Foundation would like to thank Patrick, Dana and Perry Morrison for their support.  Patrick is a Chevrolet General Manager with AutoNation and donates $100.00  to the Foundation for any vehicle purchase from any of the 18 local  AutoNation stores.


He has arranged special GSC pricing for almost all new and used vehicles. Call Patrick at 469 688-7815 to take advantage of the special pricing and he will facilitate the employee pricing, make it simple and easy and arrange for our non-profit sailing Foundation to receive the donation.


Locally AutoNation has these new vehicle franchises Chevrolet, Ford, Mazda, Nissan, Honda, Toyota and is soon to add Chrysler, Dodge Jeep and Ram."

Donate your Boat

Grapevine Community Sailing Education Foundation is a 501C3 non-profit organization.  This means that your boat donations provide you with a Tax Write-Off.  


GCSEF relies on boat donations as a primary method of keeping our fleet of boats up to date and in good conditions.  Whether you have an Opti, Laser or Keel Boat, GCSEF can utilize your donations.  If the boat is a boat the kids can utilize for camps, learning or education, we will keep the boat.  If you have a boat that is not as conducive to junior sailing, no worries, we will take care of selling the boat and utilizing the funds to update and upgrade our fleet of junior boats.  Either way, the kids win and you get a tax.


Contact us at Kristine Leathers if you have a boat to donate.

Giving to the Community

In addition to our Summer Camps, racing and education programs, GCSEF gives back to the community of Grapevine and North Texas.  


In 2015 we worked with Silver Lake Elementary School to teach kids STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) through sailing.  The kids all designed their own model boats, tested those boats in a model boat regatta and finally put their learning to practice on the water.  Over a 2 day session, GCSEF provides a learn to sail session for over 100 5th graders. 

In addition, in 2014 we worked with the Wounded Warrior Project to help teach Wounded Warriors and their kids how to sail.  We worked with over 60 Wounded Warriors and their Families providing a great 2 day, learn to sail session.  

Let us know if you would like us to work with your organization.
