The most important word in our name is “community.”

We serve thousands of people every year, many of whom wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to access Lake Champlain without our facility and affordable programs. Learn more about our community impact in our 2017 Annual Report. To keep everything running smoothly, we rely on the generosity of our community. There are several ways you can support the Community Sailing Center:

Give the Gift of the Lake


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


Whether it’s helping to open the CSC each spring, greeting people at events, or helping out around the office, there’s always a need for volunteers.


The Corporate Partner Program offers numerous ways for your organization to support the Community Sailing Center while enjoying great benefits, visibility, and alignment with our mission.
