The Whet Foundation is a Florida based 501c3 organization that offers grass roots disaster relief for those experiencing hardships and creates exciting experiences for underprivileged children in South Florida, the Caribbean and Mexico. Through our Community Captains and Destination Donation programs, we strive to excite the lives of those less fortunate in a fun and engaging way while positively affecting an entire generation.
Through the Whet Foundation, Whet Travel gives back to each destination visited via the Destination Donation excursions. All sailing “Captains” are asked to bring donations of school supplies, clothing, and other items needed for orphanages, schools, and/or a local charity that works with underprivileged children. Whet Foundation volunteers help fill backpacks with the donated items, then to deliver to the children and spend time interacting with them via art projects, music, fun activities, facility repairs, and more. Many of the volunteers rate their Whet Foundation experience as the highlight of their cruise.
If you have any questions, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website for more information.

In 2020, the Whet Foundation launched it’s COVID-19 Relief Fund through the Groove Cruise Virtual Sail Aways live streams on twitch and have since accumulated over 9 million minutes watched and 1 million live views; this massive support raised over $50,000 for those facing hardships due to COVID-19 and was able to send over 250 relief grants and donate hundreds of face shields to multiple hospitals in South Florida.
The Whet Foundation COVID-19 Relief Fund will ease the financial burden of artists experiencing hardships, captains who sail with us, health workers keeping us safe, former employees, contractors, and partner companies that have laid off employees, and that of our extended friends and family. The COVID-19 Relief Fund provides tax-free funds for any number of hardships; including unanticipated healthcare costs, rent or mortgage payments, utility expenses, food, medicine, and other necessities.
