Sails for Sustenance is dedicated to recycling sails donated in the U.S. by providing them to subsistence fishermen of Haiti.
Sails for Sustenance partners with trusted U.S.-based 501(c)3 organizations that have many years of experience operating in Haiti. These community-based organizations ensure reliable, equitable sail distribution to the subsistence fishermen of Haiti.
Promote Sails for Sustenance in your fleet or at your yacht club. Collect sails or hold a fundraiser to support a Haitian fishing village. Click here to learn more.
Contributions, both in-kind and monetary, are tax-deductible. All funds raised are used to transport sails to Haiti, or to send SFS representatives to Haiti to assess the impact of donated sails and to expand our reach by forming partnerships with trusted organizations that operate in Haiti every day. We make our 501(c)(3) documentation available for your convenience.
