2020 Annual Appeal

Do you love seeing kids sailing on a beautiful summer’s day? Would you like to help more Clinton kids and adults learn to sail? Your gift to CSC will make this possible!

Clinton Sailing Club (CSC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting safe, active, and fun community sailing. Our goal is to make sailing available to all local kids ages 8-18, regardless of income level.

Since launching in 2016, CSC has held true to our values: helping families in need, getting kids outdoors to enjoy nature, and teaching the lifelong skill of sailing.

Sailing also connects people to our local history. Clinton is a seafaring town; fishing, boatbuilding, and maritime trade are part of our heritage. CSC keeps this spirit alive and teaches future generations to respect and value the ocean.

Sailing builds confidence, teaches teamwork, and develops leadership skills. Sailing is for everyone!

CSC had an amazing summer 2019! Donors like you have helped us do so much in only four short years. Here are just a few of the highlights we accomplished together this summer:

  • Taught over 180 local children and 50 adults to sail
  • Launched our 3-day Instructor and Junior Instructor Training Program
  • Expanded Sailorship (“Sailing Scholarship”) grants for Clinton kids in need
  • Purchased 2 new Quest and 3 new Zest sailboats (check out those neon sails!)

CSC has even bigger plans for 2020. Our plans include offering Sailorships for Clinton adults in need and launching Women’s Intermediate Sailing. CSC will continue to provide more opportunities for more people to connect with the outdoors and get out on the water.

Will you please make a donation today? The easiest way to contribute is online, or mail a check to Clinton Sailing Club, PO Box 22, Clinton, CT 06413. Download, print, and return our donor response card for more options including monthly sustaining donations, employer match, honor/memorial gifts, and leaving a gift for CSC in your will. Your generosity will help us bring the CSC experience and values into more young people’s lives. I am counting on your support!

Help a child in need. Give the gift of sailing today!
