Give Big

The Sailing Foundation is taking part in the Seattle Foundation's annual "Give Big" campaign. On May 10 your donation will be matched dollar for dollar. 

That's right, we have secured $5,000 in matching funds which will be used to match your donation dollar for dollar up to $5,000. If we tap out our matching donations we'll have reached our $10,000 goal to help sustain our Youth Sailing Initiative


Visit on May 10th between 12:01am and 11:59pm and watch as your donation is doubled! Want to donate early? You can start giving to your favorite charities, including The Sailing Foundation, on April 27. However, donations will not be processed until May 10.

Sailing Foundation Programs

Youth Sailing Initiative

We are here to augment the good work currently being done by local sailing programs and organizations. Focused on youth sailing at all levels, but with a special focus on racing, we believe sailing as an activity offers a unique medium for personal growth and enrichment.

Safety At Sea

We are dedicated to promoting safe boating throughout both the commercial and pleasure boating industry. In support of this effort, we conduct bi-annual Safety at Sea Seminars. These two-day seminars provide valuable information to cruising and racing sailors, as well as commercial operators.
