Passionate about what we do? Help us do even more!

We serve hundreds of children every year, many of whom wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to access Lake Charlevoix without our affordable programs and two (Boyne City and Charlevoix) locations. To keep everything running smoothly, we rely on the generosity of our community. Sail Charlevoix (Lake Charlevoix Mariners, Inc.) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable educational organization and our donations are tax deductible. There are several ways you can support Sail Charlevoix:

2019 Life Jacket Campaign

As we are planning for another great season, we are excited to announce our 2019 Sail Charlevoix Life Jacket Campaign! Irish Boat Shop has graciously partnered with Sail Charlevoix to help replace our loaner life jackets for students that don’t have their own. Our current stock of life jackets are aging and need replacing. Your generous donation will help  ensure  all of our students will be safe on the water.  Our goal is raise $4,000 for sixty six new Gill life jackets. Thanks to Sue Stewart and Irish Boat Shop for making this possible!

All donations are tax deductible. Thank you for your support!


Donors provide the funds, goods, and services we rely on to provide programming, equipment, and operations, which ensures no participant is turned away because they can not afford to participate.

We also welcome donations of boats and equipment in good working order. Large boats should have a trailer. We require a title and or registration; same for the trailer. Please sign the back of the title - without designating a new owner. Upon sale of the boat, you will receive formal receipt for tax purposes.


Whether it’s helping to prep our Depot Beach location each spring, getting the boats put away at the end of the season, helping with a regatta, or lending your professional expertise, there’s always love for our volunteers!


Sponsors have been the life-blood of our organization since 1985. Sponsorship offers numerous ways for your own business/organization to support the Lake Charlevoix Mariners organization while enjoying great visibility, and alignment with our mission.

Thank you sponsors!
