Here's where your money goes when you donate at the CBC!

Every dollar you give supports our programs and scholarships, ensuring that the Community Boating Center is truly a place for all.

  • $350 (or $30/month) gives a local child, like the one pictured above, a week of sailing and paddling camp, where they'll get a break from life's challenges while building skills in team-work, communication, decision-making, and marine stewardship.
  • $275 (or $23/month) connects a local woman with other women sailors - as they learn fundamental sailing skills in a group setting, and nourish each other's growth as community members and boaters.
  • $150 (or $12.50/month) empowers a group of ten at-risk youth to build confidence and self-esteem learning the basics of paddling on Bellingham Bay.
  • $50 (or $4.50/month) prevents a drowning by ensuring students and renters have access to high quality PFDs and safety equipment.
  • $25 buys a spill response kit, so that we can keep our shoreline clean and safe for everyone to use.

As our community's needs continue to evolve and expand, we need your help to meet them. Please donate, and directly grow the next generation of boaters.
