Two by Twenty Two Chase Boat Challenge

SISO's number one priority is SAFETY, and one of the most important safety components in a youth sailing program is the availability and operation of safety/chase power boats while the kids are on the water. These power boats provide the ability to respond to a variety of potential emergency situations extremely quickly.  SISO is conducting a major fund raising campaign to replace our two outdated and sometimes unreliable chase boats.

Based on a recent commitment by an anonymous donor, SISO is hereby kicking off the Two by Twenty-Two Chase Boat Challenge. This generous donor will match up to one dollar for each additional safety/chase boat dollar donated. There are also naming rights for each boat at the $25,000 Gold Level. If two major gifts such as this are received, the ‘Matching Donor’ will fill the gap to reach the $76,000 goal.

Please consider a tax-deductible donation to help support this critical need. Individual tax filers (including married individuals filing separate returns) can claim a deduction of up to $300 for cash contributions made to qualifying charities during 2021, even if you take the standard deduction and don't itemize. The maximum deduction is increased to $600 for married individuals filing joint returns.

See our Donate Page for how to contribute to this effort.  Thank you for your generous support!
