We are Growing Celebration – April 2019

Ahoy Friend!

Freedom Waters Foundation family has and is growing!

Over 3000 on the water experiences were provided last year with just two full time and three part time FWF staff and over 300 volunteers! Thanks to the Board members, Donors, Boat Owners and Volunteers – You Make it Happen! So, what’s new? ...


  • We have two new staff members coming aboard May 1. Liam Cofell-Dwyer as your Development Director and Allison Donahue as our West Coast Program Coordinator.
  • For those of you who have been to our large closet of an office – don’t worry, we will have a second office down the same hall at the Naples Boat Club, so still plenty of room for all of you to come and visit.
  • I am so pleased and grateful to announce that Pam and Bob Karll have come aboard as the new Chairs for the Kind Mariners Ball 2020. You may recognize them in the photo below.
  • Kind Mariners Ball 2020 — SAVE THE DATE! – Thursday, February 27, 2020 – Lots of fun, new surprises and experiences! Theme to be announced soon.
  • Programs are growing and we are serving record numbers and that is truly because of all the wonderful lead volunteers who are incredible hosts with the generous boat owners to all of our participants. My heart is full with gratitude for each and every one of you!

It’s an exciting time for Freedom Waters Foundation and there will be more happening as we move forward, so please stay in touch. Your feedback is always welcomed and encouraged.

You are a valuable member of the Freedom Waters Foundation family. Would love to hear from you. Share your thoughts, concerns, suggestions.

With a heart full of love and gratitude…
My best to you all,

Debra Frenkel, LCSW
Executive Director/Founder
