Courageous Sailing is a nonprofit, 501c3 organization. Our programs rely on the generous support of a growing community of individuals, foundations and corporations that support our mission to transform the lives of Boston's kids through sailing programs that inspire learning, personal growth and leadership. Support comes in many forms, from an annual volunteer day to a donated auction item, from giving $5 at a weeknight cookout to heading up a team in our annual Corporate Challenge. Courageous truly stands out through the character and commitment of the people and organizations who help make our programs available to everyone.

Individual Support

Personal donations are a key part of our funding. Every gift helps, and every time you come to Courageous you are doing your part to support our programs. Whether you are a new or long-time member or you just came down with a friend to try racing one evening, you are helping to support Courageous kids and increase the community's access to Boston Harbor. We thank everyone who has given to support our mission. To give, click here.

Community Partners

Strengthening and extending the relationhips in our community is a foundational principal of Courageous Sailing. We establish community partnerships as a benefit to our members as well as those outside of our organization. If you are interested in becoming a community partner, please contact Dave DiLorenzo at Current active members of these organizations are invited to enjoy 10% off individual and family memberships and 10% off most learn to sail courses.
