Raise the Sails! Campaign
Help with a gift today
Without SISO, few Treasure Valley kids would have the opportunity to discover sailing and everything that goes with it. We think everyone should have the opportunity to sail.
Our vision is to expand learn-to-sail opportunities to accommodate everyone – including adults, veterans, school programs, and adaptive sailing for the disabled. In the near-term, our goal is to serve up to 100 youth (ages 10-17) per 10-week summer season. Making that possible requires purchasing additional boats, safety equipment, equipment storage facilities, and infrastructure - like the dock improvement project completed in 2019.

The full funding level for our program is $600,000. In the first two years of our operations, we have raised almost $200,000 in grants, corporate and private donations, and low-interest loans. We need to raise an additional $400,000 for full program implementation. Help us ensure a safe, first-rate instructional program for the future! Become a program advocate today by supporting youth sailing education in the Treasure Valley.
