Donate

BAADS is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt charitable organization (tax ID 94-3067409). For our 25 plus year history we have been an all volunteer organization. We appreciate all donations of funding and volunteering, which make it possible for us to provide the best possible sailing programs for people with disabilities.

If you want your donation to be made in a person’s honor or directed to a specific aspect of the BAADS sailing programs, please specify this in writing when making your donation, or send an email to treasurer@baads.org. If making your donation online through Paypal, you can add special instructions to BAADS on the final screen before submitting your donation.  Otherwise all donations are added to the general fund and distributed by the Board to the needs of the programs.
