Help Us Get Adventure Sailing Again!
The restoration of the hull has been completed and we are ready to fit Schooner Adventure out for sailing. We have already received a $65,000 donation to purchase a new suit of sails! Our dedicated staff has made tremendous progress in securing this grant, and in soliciting additional funding for the completion of the restoration and to continue our acclaimed educational programming.
However, raising funds for day-to-day operational expenses has been an ongoing challenge for us, as is true for most non-profits.
The Annual Appeal campaign is vital to the financial well-being of our organization, allowing us to continue to fulfill our mission to fully restore and sail the Schooner Adventure as an educational vessel. The grants we receive for restoration and programs do not generally include funding for the organization’s overhead, nor do we receive any operating support from government entities.
Please consider in your tax deductible donations a contribution to our 2007 Annual Appeal.
