Our Annual Membership Program offers all individuals and organizations the chance to get involved and show support of boating education and water safety. Members that make a commitment to boating safety at the Corporation and Sustaining Levels receive recognition through our web site and annually in our newsletter.
Our programs are funded through grants, commercial support, and the generosity of like minded businesses and individuals. When you donate to the national Spirit of America program, you provide the tools necessary to maintain and spread our mission throughout the United States. Our goal is to have a Spirit of America location in each state. With your support, we can get there!
Our volunteers are extraordinary people. They give their time to help shape and protect the lives of young people in their communities.
Our volunteers selflessly give their time to promote water and boating safety. They are charged not only with educating the young people in our programs, but with touching their lives and influencing entire communities.
Our volunteers report that they benefit tremendously through the experience and many volunteer year after year. Volunteers can commit to a location for the duration of a session or to a specific lesson, either on the water or in the classroom. Many of our volunteers find the programs so rewarding and enjoyable that they come back year after year.
To volunteer for this rewarding experience, please contact the location directly.
Our programs flourish through generous in-kind donations at each of our program locations. From training space to equipment, these donations are critical to our programs and are fully tax deductible. Donors providing in-kind contributions receive recognition through our web site and annually in our newsletter.
Your support will provide for Spirit of America far into the future.
Just a few of the items we will provide to each location:
Boats and auxiliary equipment
Boating and Water Safety Equipment
Lifejackets for the program and for the graduates of each program
Workbooks for the graduates and Instructors
Certification and training for instructors
Program Insurance for local hosts
Growth in boating and water safety awareness and program opportunities for local communities and on the national level.
In a effort to honor a graduate in your area you may contribute to a specific program or to honor a family or friend who is a graduate of SOA.
