Donate to LWSA

Donations of any amount are gratefully accepted.  LWSA is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, so your donations are tax-deductible and go directly to supporting LWSA's good work in the local community. Your donations are what keep LWSA afloat.  

  • Donate to the Capital Fund and ensure maintenance and renewal of the sailing school fleet, classrooms, dock, and moorings - underpinning great summer programs at the sailing school.  

  • Donate to the Scholarship Fund to help LWSA break down financial barriers so that any young kid can sail next summer.  Each year a number of kids benefit from partial or whole financial aid scholarships for sailing school.

  • Donate to support and improve our programs, so that the Board can direct funds to the most urgent needs of the program this year and to development of planned programs such as sailing events for physically- or developmentally-challenged members of the community, veterans events, and youth racing development.  If you have a specific area of interest, please let us know.
