Donate to Sail Sand Point

Your donation to Sail Sand Point allows us to provide scholarships to any sailor, ensuring cost won’t keep sailors ashore. Your donation allows historically underserved groups to join Sail Sand Point for a day on the lake with our Shipmates 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!

With the support of our community, in 2018 Sail Sand Point was able to:

  • Host 15,159 total participants
  • Award $38,405 in Scholarships

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.

If you have not already informed us of your gift, please write or call SSP. Donor names may not transfer with the shares.

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!
