At this time your membership payment is tax deductible. Membership shows your support of our sailing team kids and our work helping others improve their sailing skills during the summer. From time-to-time we may have outings to honor all our members, but we currently do not offer any benefits to our members that have financial value. Therefore your membership payment is tax deductible under our 501(c)(3) foundation. You will receive no letterhead receipt, but payment via our PayPal account will produce a receipt for your tax records.
Our foundation work is almost entirely volunteer supported, except for the team sailing coach position. Even then our coach is offering services at a great discount, motivated by a passion to share the love of sailing with others. We try to make your charitable contributions go as far as possible. Some of our largest costs are for insurance, equipment, and sailing team related expenses.
