401Gives – 2023

Ready to Lend a Helping Hand? | 401Gives

401Gives is in it’s 4th year and we hope we can have your continued support!  This year is the Weekend Edition – an amazing opportunity to unite our community around causes in which we truly believe and help nonprofit organizations connect to the larger community.   

Now there is a whole weekend to celebrate…it starts on March 31 at 6am and goes through Monday, April 3 until 6pm.  Plenty of time to make a gift and give back to the community that gives so much!

With your help, Community Boating continues to enrich the lives of deserving inner-city youth with extraordinary experiences that expand their hopes, dreams, and aspirations beyond the limitations of a concrete horizon or computer screen. While sailing each day at CBC, youth absorb lessons on land/sea breezes and how they impact the ability to sail, buoyancy/density, water quality testing, marine debris, and associated environmental education.

We need your help to make our campaign a success, and we’ve included a few easy ways that you can support us.
