who donates?

Most of our donations come from the help of our alumni, parents, and members of the sailing community.


Where donations go & How to donate

Our donations are used for a variety of initiatives including travel, fleet maintenance, training for national events, and more!

There are many ways in which you can donate to our team:

  • To our gift account - donations here are put towards capital purchases and operational costs

  • To our endowment - the interest is put towards hiring a coach and fleet maintenance

  • Please reach out to us if you have any questions regarding this process!

Your donations help give all sailors the opportunity to compete at regattas that range from local MCSA events to the ICSA National Championships.

Donate your old gear

The Michigan Sailing Team has a lot of first-time sailors who we are always aiming to equip with effective gear! We have started a drysuit rental program which allows our sailors to have access to drysuits during their time on the team. If you have any gear you would like to donate to our team, please contact our Sailing Development Chair, Jake Orhan at orhanjac@umich.edu!


Host our sailors

Many events we attend do not provide housing, so we rely on our parents, alumni, and supporters to support us while we compete all across the country! Whether you can offer a night for four sailors or host a larger event, we appreciate it immensely.

If you are interested in potentially hosting sailors in the future, please fill out this form and we'll get back to you within 48 hours.
