What is the 2021 Annual Campaign?
Each August, Sail Sand Point hosts our Annual Campaign, a fundraising campaign focused on a specific area of need. For the month of August 2021, your donation will help provide us with additional security personnel and to upgrade our safety equipment! Among other improvements, SSP will be able to upgrade our fleet of safety boats, purchase more PFDs for use both with our programs and as a free community resource to visitors, and purchase much-needed new radios for our staff. Your donation allows us to create pathways to the sport of sailing and small boats that are safe, fun, and accessible to everyone. Thank you so much for supporting us during our annual campaign and throughout the years.

All donations made to Sail Sand Point allow us to maintain our low tuition programming and provide scholarships to any sailor, ensuring cost won’t keep sailors ashore. Your donation allows historically under-served groups to join Sail Sand Point for a day on the lake with our Leeway program. Your donation supports the young athlete hoping to compete in the Junior Olympics and the disabled veteran who has taken to the water for the first time. With your support, we continue to instill self-confidence, leadership, and environmental stewardship in every single person who walks through our doors. Because of you, we are able to continue striving to provide everyone access to the slice of lake Sail Sand Point calls home!
