Cash contributions allow us to fulfill our equipment needs, but sometimes, receiving the actual equipment, in lieu of cash, will meet our needs just as well. If you have equipment in the following categories that is safe, well maintained and in good to excellent condition we would love to know about it:
Sailboats we use in our programs:
Please note: Because we teach sailing to children, we will be very selective in the boats we accept. We will accept only boats that we can use immediately in our programs.
Power boats we need: Inflatables and 20-25’ outboard
Misc. Equipment Needs:
- Sails (pending appraisal by Z Sails)
- Power Tools
- Fire extinguishers, horns, etc.
Equipment we DO NOT need: There are also limits to what we can accept. We deeply appreciate you’re thinking of SoundWaters, but we cannot use the following:
- Stand Up Paddle Boards
- Wind Surfers
- supplies (life jackets, paddles, rope, etc.)
- Boat engines
Acknowledgment of In-Kind Donations: We will send you a signed and dated letter thanking you for your donation, listing the items received and stating that no goods or services were provided to you in exchange for your donation. We will not place a value on your donation. IRS regulations state that you (the donor) are responsible for establishing the value of your in-kind donation.
