Considering our ambitious goals, you might expect to see a long list of donors on this page. We expect that as well. We are just getting started. We are a Washington State non-profit corporation and have also secured 501c3 status.

Current donors include:

  • Marsh and McLennan Companies
  • The Northwest Marine Trade Association.
  • Rich and Katy Wilkens
  • Karl Osusky
  • Steve and Teri Patrick
  • Duncan Cox
  • Doug Ritchie
  • Diane Hughes
  • Michael and Kate Lampi
  • Traci Cole
  • Sheri Baker
  • Wai Poon
  • Tammara Hargrove
  • David Warner

The money will be used to purchase starter boats and paddles. Our stretch goal will allow us to purchase some intermediate and advanced boats as well as our own wakeless chase boat.

Long term needs include startup costs for a canoe and paracanoe program, a boat trailer and travel funds to help offset travel expenses for athletes who qualify for regional, national and international competitions. Plus, of course, as we grow and our athletes progress, we need to be prepared to equip them with racing-class boats – which range from $4,000 to $10,000. The good news is that these boats last for years and will help generations of athletes chase their dreams.

Your generous donations will allow us to keep the cost for participants low and to extend program services to low-income families.
