As a non-profit, all volunteer organization, CGRA relies on the support of individual and corporate donors to sustain our operations. In partnership with the City and Port of Cascade Locks, we are working hard to expand the resources needed to support sailing activities in The Gorge, including boats, equipment, coaches and instructors, event management, and improvements to the facilities. Grants, donations, and sponsorships account for nearly one-third of CGRA’s annual budget and enable us to provide invaluable opportunities to sailors of all ages, from young novices to Olympic athletes. We could not do this without your help! If you share CGRA’s vision for quality sailing programs in The Gorge, we welcome your assistance and offer several ways to participate: Become a member Support a great cause and enjoy the pride of CGRA membership. Memberships are available in several categories to fit any budget: Student: $35• Basic: $50• Intermediate: $100• Pro: $150• Benefactor: $500• All CGRA members receive recognition in the CGRA annual report and a subscription to CGRA’s quarterly electronic newsletter. Higher levels of membership receive discounts on entry fees and other cool benefits.

Become a sponsor Put your company’s name in front of thousands of sailors, coaches, and spectators who come from around the world to participate in CGRA events and/or follow our events in the international sailing press. A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available, from single events to the entire season. Donate a scholarship Without financial assistance, sailing would be an impossible dream for many of the kids in our learn-to-sail program. A $30 donation buys a day’s lesson, or you can sponsor a week for $150.

No experience necessary; your energy and passion are what we need! Help build a world-class sailing center Join our campaign to build a world-class sailing center in the Columbia River Gorge.
