The Judd Goldman Foundation supports a learn-to-sail program for the disabled and an inner-city program for youth, providing a way to gain new skills, overcome obstacles and achieve self-esteem and independence.  The Foundation is a public/private partner with the Chicago Park District.

The Foundation is proud to have as our honored guests the Independence Cup sailors competing for the disabled sailing championship.
