Give the Gift of the Sea
For as little as $10 you can send a child aboard the Lady Washington or Hawaiian Chieftain—broadening their horizons and showing them the ocean environment as they’ve never seen it before. Our educational programs are quality, hands-on outdoor education that teaches self-reliance, respect for the environment, and teamwork. You can enrich the lives of students in your community today by giving a scholarship gift.
Send a Child Aboard ($10 and up)
A donation as small as $10 can sponsor one student to participate in a shipboard education program.*
Send a Child Sailing ($35 and up)
For $35 a child will join us for a three hour sailing adventure in a shipboard education program.*
Send a Class Aboard ($275)
For a donation of $275 you can send an entire class aboard the Lady or Chieftain for a one-hour Voyages of Discovery dockside education program, where the Captain and crew will teach them about life on the high seas in the 18th century.*
Send the Whole Class Sailing ($1,200)
For a donation of $1,200 you can sponsor an entire class to set sail on a three-hour Voyages of Discovery sailing education program. Students will learn about maritime history from the crew, set the sails themselves, and often spot marine life on this unforgettable adventure.*
Sponsorships are available for students and teachers only; chaperones will not be sponsored. All sponsors receive a thank you letter from GHHSA and acknowledgement of their donation on our website and in our annual report in the fiscal year following their donation. Class sponsors may receive thank you letters from the students as well. Class Sponsors may designate a port where they would prefer their donation used. GHHSA will make every effort to comply with such a request, thought this cannot be guaranteed. Individual sponsors will not be able to designate a specific port.
*Ten percent of donations support administrative costs of the program.
