Kiwanis Virtual Regatta - ends July 31 at Midnight
This online event is a facilitated fundraiser where a company or individual sponsors a nonprofit charity. The sponsorship funds go to the Columbus Kiwanis Foundation and enable a nonprofit to participate and raise funds in the Virtual Regatta! The Columbus Kiwanis Foundation's charitable works support youth programs in Columbus, including the award-winning Columbus Metropolitan Library's Summer Reading Challenge.  

All of the funds raised from this event are going to support charitable works! 100% of the virtual regatta racing proceeds go to the nonprofit charities! Please check out our "logo sponsors" at the bottom of this page and click through to their websites!

How does a NONPROFIT join the Virtual Regatta?
  1. Register your nonprofit yacht on the racing site - Regatta Registration 2023
  2. Receive a yacht from a member of the Kiwanis Crew and decorate it: Be creative, use your logo, a fun descriptive theme, etc. to show your team spirit and creativity!
  3. Take a photo of your yacht and upload your photo - Regatta Registration 2023
  4. A Kiwanis harbormaster will approve your entry and you will be live!
  5. Once live, you are at the helm - encourage your supporters, business partners, friends, family, or anyone to vote for your yacht and raise funds for your charity!
How do you "race" your yacht in the Virtual Regatta?
  • Each vote ($1 per vote) will propel your yacht! There is no limit on the number of votes or frequency of votes cast. 100% of proceeds go to charitable causes!
  • While every yacht and its designated charity are winners, the three yachts with the most votes (dollars raised) will win additional Kiwanis prizes!
When do you race your yacht?
  • The virtual regatta voting launches on 07/01/2023 with an exciting finish on 07/31/2023.
  • Entries can continue throughout July – there is no such thing as a late start!
