We need sun protection on the docks, as well as a place to protect the sailors' wheelchairs from the sun and rain when they are out on the water.

$1195 + HST

In addition to these equipment needs we also require operating funds for the program.  The $50 annual membership fees and the $15 fee for a sailing outing cover approximately 8% of our expenses. The Canada Summer Jobs grant covers about half of the salaries of our paid staff. Able Sail Toronto finances expenses such as staff payroll, insurance, port-o-potty rental, gas for the safety boat, etc. 

Able Sail Toronto relies on the support of donors, sponsors and volunteers. Without this support we would not be able to provide this unique program to our community. We are truly grateful for every contribution - financial and personal. We truly cannot achieve our mission without all of our support. Thank you!
