Sponsor a Sailor
Sponsor a Junior Sailor
Imagine the independence a child feels the first time at the helm of a sailboat. Experiential learning is so important for building self-confidence and encouraging critical thinking. At Treasure Island Sailing Center we provide the opportunity for children to learn these valuable lessons while cultivating a love for the sport of sailing. If you are a life long sailor or if you have dreamed of sailing on the bay you can appreciate the fantastic experiences a youngster will have by participating in our classes.
TISC's sailing programs remove financial barriers by providing scholarships to children from all socio economic backgrounds. About 75 percent of our students live in households where the total combined annual income is less than $40,000.
At TISC, we create an environment where children feel empowered. Through our programs, children enjoy access to the water and the invigorating challenges of participating in a sport, working in teams and cultivating leadership skills. Our sailors gain a sense of responsibility, strengthen communication and decision-making skills, set challenges, and gain confidence while having fun and making new friends.
By contributing to the Sponsor a Sailor Program, you will help TISC involve children who would not ordinarily have access to sailing by providing them with free sailing lessons and a chance to develop ties in the local sailing community.
Donations of all amounts and purposes are welcome. General donations can be made to help fund programs, general operating costs, facility improvements, and are critical to our success in serving the community.
