Dear Clearwater Community,

It takes a village to raise a sail.

As a nonprofit and a working wooden sloop, we rely on the support of our community to keep the Clearwater sailing.  

Anyone can support the sloop, wherever you are and whatever your budget.
Take a look at our Ways to Give below to find what works best for you.

Donations are tax deductible, and a charitable donation tax receipt will be issued at the time of donation.

To ensure that your donation matches the sloop’s current needs, please contact the Captains at before sending any items to the boat that do not appear on our Amazon Wish List.

Ways to Give

Bring In What You Already Have

We encourage re-gifting!

Do you have extra screwdrivers cluttering your workbench?
Or a garage full of stuff that you don’t use?
Maybe you were gifted a shiny new power drill and don’t know what to do with your old one?

Some helpful used items you can bring in:
