Throughout the year 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 us, supports the young athlete hoping to compete in the Junior Olympics and underwrites 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.

With the support of our community, in 2023 Sail Sand Point was able to:
  • Host approximately 14,418 total participants
  • Award $36,902 in Scholarships
  • Host 40 organizations to bring 637 underserved participants to SSP
  • Provide over $316,472 in public benefit to the greater Seattle area

With your donations, 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!

When you authorize the stock transfer you will need to provide the following information:
  • Name of registered owners of the shares
  • Name of eligible brokerage
  • Account holder address and daytime telephone number
  • Whether you will list your name or remain anonymous

Per IRS rules, SSP credits a stock donation the day it is received into our account, not the date of transfer from the donor’s account. Also per IRS rules, it is the donor’s responsibility to value an in-kind gift.

SSP’s acknowledgement letter will cite the number of shares received, but no dollar amount. Please consult your attorney and/or tax advisor regarding the special regulations and requirements related to stock and other non-cash gifts, including the substantiation necessary to claim a charitable deduction, if applicable.

Corporate Matching

In Seattle, we are fortunate many companies offer corporate donation or volunteer-time matching.

If your employer offers corporate donation/volunteer-time matching, you can request that your employer match your donation to Sail Sand Point or make a donation in your name for any volunteer hours that you record! Some local employers that participate include: Microsoft, Boeing, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, United Way, and many more!
