The St. George Community Sailing Foundation was founded in 2001 to promote and teach sailing in the town of St. George, Maine. Tenants Harbor serves as the program's home. Besides the youth programs, the SGCSF also sponsors a "Maritime Day" each year. As part of its mission to reach as many young people as possible, the SGCSF offers reduced tuition to residents of St. George attending the local schools, and also has scholarships available. The Foundation has a cooperative relationship with Tanglewood/Blueberry Cove Camp.

The Foundation is a non-profit Maine corporation, holding a 501(c)(3) status with the Internal Revenue Service. SGCSF welcomes capital contributions for the purchase of sailing dinghies, floats, support boats and related equipment. It also encourages contributions to its Endowment Fund to maintain its low fees and provide additional scholarships. Individuals, families and businesses can support the work of the Foundation through annual membership  by donating $25, $50, $100 or more.
