Charitable Giving to Sailing

Make a Tax-Deductible Charitable Donation to the

Lake Michigan Sail Racing Federation Endowment Fund

You can directly support the sport of sail racing and sail racing education through a donation to our wonderful 501(c)(3) charity.  Donations have built the LMSRF Endowment Fund to over $500,000. The proceeds of the investment are awarded through the LMSRF Grants-In-Aid program. Any membership level you elect above Regular Membership is a charitable gift as an addition to the membership dues amount.

You may donate online immediately, click here.

You may print a form and mail in your donation today, click here.

You may join as a Life Member. For a donation of $1,000 you will receive the benefits of membership for the remainder of your natural life - no more annual dues.  Paper form or Electronic.

You may donate your boat. When LMSRF derives a benefit of $1,000 or more, you will receive the benefits of Life Membership without ever paying dues again.  Contact Donation Chair Glenn McCarthy at This email address is being protected from spambots.
