Foundations and Corporate Partners

Special thanks to the foundations, companies, and philanthropic partners who support the Courageous mission.

Courageous Sailing is a nonprofit, 501c3 organization. Our programs rely on the generous support of a growing community of individuals, foundations and corporations that support our mission to transform the lives of Boston’s kids through sailing programs that inspire learning, personal growth and leadership. Support comes in many forms, from an annual volunteer day to a donated auction item, from giving $5 at a weeknight cookout to heading up a team in our annual Corporate Challenge. Courageous truly stands out through the character and commitment of the people and organizations who help make our programs available to everyone.
