J. Kirk Robertson, President of the BYCF 


 

BYCF

 

Paul W. Dick was our founding President.  He presided over the board as we hammered out our legal framework and all the start-up stuff that just had to get done. 

 

As of January 2016 the BYC Foundation board of directors consists of the President: Kirk Robertson, Honorary Secretary: Alain Jegen, Honorary Treasurer: Mary Bundy, Director: Carolyn Johnson, Director Communications. 

 

A large donation in 1999 from Past Commodore, Livius Sherwood, began a dream about of a “foundation” and dutifully held by BYC. A subsequent  bequest from Charlie Marshall allowed the dream to be fully realized and the foundation was established by members in 2010. Many have since donated monies; the Foundation can't thank you enough. The full donors list appears under the donation tab at https://bycf.ca/.

  

BYCF  will continue to accepts gifts and bequests for specific Legacies funds and Projects funds relating to it’s purposes. Legacy donations are invested in “blue chip” stocks with a dividend payout. Only the dividends are distributed yearly as per the terms specified by the donors. 

 

The board believes that the way it does business always has to improve. We have a non-disclosure policy, which all members of the board, advisors to the board and BYC staff who help, sign every year. We have a written privacy policy on anonymous donations. All our corporate policies can be found at https://bycf.ca/. The BYCF continues to strives to gain and maintain your trust by:

 

  • Being transparent in our effective communications to members, 
  • Seeking member input for worthwhile initiatives, 
  • Investing the monies donated responsibly and according to our Policies and, 
  • Allocating donated funds and the derived income as donors have specified.

 

BYCF membership is free and is open to all full BYC members. This allows for a direct membership oversight and control of the Foundation by the BYCF members.
