Give Like a Girl for #GivingTuesday: Your Donation Changes the Equation
Again this year, we are raising funds for Give Like a Girl on #GivingTuesday, December 3, 2019 to support all Northwest Maritime Center female-forward programs like the Girls’ Boat Project, Race Like a Girl, sailing classes for women and girls and more.
Did you know that in Washington State, a mere 3% of sailors are female, and only 2.5% of maritime careers are held by women? We need to do something about this, and thanks to you, we are!
Thanks to your generous support, the reality in our community is a little bit different:
- 44% of our youth sailing programs participants are female
- 42% of our adult sailing programs participants are female
- The youngest female R2AK racer was 16
- The oldest R2AK female finisher was 73
- 45% of R2AK participants are female
Let’s keep moving the dial! The time is now to show your support for women and girls. Help us bridge the gap and increase the number of women and girls in maritime professions and sailing. The maritime glass ceiling is basically the floor. We can change that.
All gifts made now through #GivingTuesday, December 3, 2019, qualify for a 1:1 match up to $20,000. Gifts of all sizes are appreciated and will make a difference. Please join us!
