    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Welcome to the Just Giving page for the Donati Family. Edoardo Donati sadly lost his battle with cancer last week, leaving behind his wife Silvana and daughter Phoebe. Edo was a hugely loved character in the professional sailing community, and we are aiming to raise at least €75,000 from Edo’s teammates, to support his family through this terribly difficult time.

    Edo Donati was a much-loved member of the professional sailing community for over two decades. We sadly lost our dear friend last week, and our thoughts are with his wife Silvana and daughter Phoebe. A career in professional sailing does not set us up well, to manage such tragedies. We are all rewarded richly by the wonderful experiences our sport provides, and the lifelong friends we make. But as we know all too well, it is not blessed with the formalities of a ‘normal job’, like pensions or life insurance. For Luna Rossa, Oracle, and Artemis Racing, Edo gave us his all, forever willing to sacrifice his time for the good of the team. Now is our chance to repay Edo’s support.

    Benvenuti nella pagina di Just Giving creata per la famiglia Donati. Edoardo Donati ha tristemente perso la sua battaglia contro il cancro la settimana scorsa, lascinado sua moglie Silvana e sua figlia Phoebe, Edo era largamente apprezzato ed amato dalla comunità Velica mondiale. La nostra intenzione è di raccoglire €75,000 per supportare la sua famiglia in un momento particolarmente difficile.

    Benvenuti nella pagina di Just Giving creata per la famiglia Donati. Edoardo Donati era un membro della comunità velica mondiale molto rispettato ed amato per più di vent’anni. Abbiamo tristemente perso un grande amico ed i nostri pensieri vanno a sua moglie Silvana e sua figlia Phoebe. Una carriera nella vela professionale non è abbastanza per far fronte a queste tragedie. Siamo tutti ampiamente ripagati dalle meravigliose esperienze che il nostro sport ci regala e dalle forti amicizie che si creano. Ma come tutti sappiamo bene non è un “lavoro normale”, non c’è una pensione o un’assicurazione sulla vita. Per Luna Rossa, Oracle e Artemis Racing, Edo ha dato tutto, sempre pronto a sacrificarsi per il bene del team, ora è la nostra occasione per il ripagare il suo supporto.
