How You Can Help

Sarasota Youth Sailing counts on the kindness of people in the greater Sarasota and Manatee County areas to support the numerous programs that we offer. 

Our outreach programs, summer camp, year round learn to sail and after school programs, not to mention the equipment updates and maintenance, are made possible either in part, or in whole, by contributions from individuals and corporations. Our program provides these opportunities to over 500 kids a year and we work very hard to give any child who has the interest, the opportunity to get on the water and go sailing.

This year we are participating in the Community Foundations’ Giving Challenge.  This 24 hour Giving Challenge is a great way to give back to the community through supporting your local nonprofits.  We had over 150 donors last year in the 24 hour time period.  Thank you to everyone who supported us!

Our Federal Tax ID # is 59-2008905.
