“Get More Oregon Youth Sailing!”
Our current major project is the Willamette Sailing Club Sustainable Sailing Campaign, a fundraising effort in support of fleet replacement at WSC and throughout Oregon this year.
We also raise funds for the Youth Sailing Equipment and Travel Reimbursement Fund, Collegiate Sailing Fund and Community Sailing Initiative. The Equipment Fund accepts cash donations and selected in-kind donations to provide equipment for youth sailing programs. The Travel Reimbursement Fund helps defray the cost of out-of-town travel for youth racing competitors. The Collegiate Sailing Fund sustains college sailing in Oregon by supporting coaching and program costs. The Community Sailing Initiative creates sailing opportunities and instruction for underserved youth in Oregon.
