Individual Giving

As a 501c3 nonprofit organization, Courageous programs rely on the generous support of our growing community to support our mission.

Every year we aim to transform the lives of Boston’s kids through sailing programs that inspire learning, personal growth and leadership. Support for this mission 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.

Courageous Giving Circles

The Courageous Fund Giving Circles provides members an opportunity to join a community of people passionate about Courageous – avid sailors and friends watching from the shore.
