The ZLAC Foundation, founded in 2009, has already made incredible progress
    towards our mission. Just this past year, with limited resources, but strong
    community support, we completed and opened our women’s rowing museum at the
    historic ZLAC Clubhouse on Mission Bay; launched our first free Learn to Row
    camp for two dozen young women; and provided over $8,000 in financial aide for
    needy, high school-age female rowers. Our museum contains historical artifacts
    dating back to 1892, including newspaper articles, photos, and classic rowing
    uniforms. Our Learn to Row camp was so successful that 11 young women
    continued rowing competitively and we decided to host a second free Learn To
    Row camp this past August with nearly twice as many youth.

    While The ZLAC Foundation has been fortunate enough to receive a few gracious,
    private donations, the need and desire for our programs is growing. We are seeking
    new funding opportunities to ensure that The ZLAC Foundation – the only nonprofit
    organization in San Diego seeking to promote women’s rowing and preserve
    women’s rowing history – can extend the benefits of rowing to more young San
    Diego women and archive more historical rowing documents.

ZLAC Foundation Mission Statement:
