The Geneva Lake Sailing School invites you to join us as we set sail on a new journey to support our sailors with the launch of our Magellan Campaign. Magellan will be comprised of an exclusive group of patrons who commit to supporting our sailors’ efforts with five (5) $1,000 annual, tax exempt donations for five (5) consecutive years.
The purpose of this program is to raise the funds necessary to enhance our sailors’ experiences with new fleets and capital improvements to better sustain and grow our youth and adult sailing activities.
Our goal of this campaign is the acquisition of newer, upgraded Sonars, a fleet of new Prams, a fleet of new c420’s and a total renovation of Building 4. Our long term goal and investment (which is within reach) is to turn Building 4 into a high tech rigging center allowing all of our juniors’ boats to remain rigged and ready (including Melges 14’s and Lasers) providing greater training time on the water and in the classroom.
The Geneva Lake Sailing School, a tax exempt 501(c)(3), was founded in 1930 with the mission of supporting the growth of sailing for all ages. In 2019, the GLSS demonstrated the broad reach of our offerings by covering a 75 year age span. We know that everybody has seen our program’s evolve and improve over the past few years - and we invite you to formally join us on this journey.
Please help our children and adults who are passionate about growing the sport of sailing by becoming a Magellan. This opportunity will close on December 31, 2019.
