The boathouse is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. We have no paid staff, and all donations go right back into our free kayaking programs. All donations are 100% tax deductible.
Do you have a kayak, paddle, life jacket, or other kayak equipment that you don't need or use? If we can use it in our public programs, you can donate it to us, and take a tax deduction.
You can also contribute via the donation boxes at any of our locations or mail a check to:
