Membership dues and regatta registrations are the lifeblood of ILYA functions. But financial support beyond dues has always been welcome, even critical, to the furtherance of the association activities.
While donors have always been recognized at least once a year in Scow Slants, the new ILYA Membership Support Level program provides another opportunity for the ILYA to recognize its supporting donors year-round.
Additional support from members with donations above and beyond the dues will now be acknowledged with a three-tiered recognition system. Donors at the following levels receive a sticker which can be displayed on an auto, a boat, or any smooth surface.
General FundsGeneral Funds contributions may be used for general ILYA operating expenditures, including:
Promotion FundsPromotion Account funds are used to finance:
First-time ILYA adult participant program. This program allows sailors who have never sailed in an adult ILYA event to have their entry fee waived.
Foundation FundsFoundation General Fund contributions: The ILYA foundation has been rechartered to accept general funds in support of Inland sailors who are accepting the challenge to venture out to non-scow National and International events. For example, a high school sailor who qualifies at the regional level to attend the nationals may petition for some level of matching funds to assist with the expense. Foundation trustees will evaluate all requests for financial assistance and provide support as feasible to qualified competitors, with youthful sailors given special preference. Click to see more information on the program.
Foundation accounts: The Inland Lake Yachting Association provides a vehicle through which donors can make tax-deductible contributions to sailors campaigning for the Olympics or Paralympics, or representing the ILYA in a national or international championship. Such sailors can set up an account with the ILYA toward which donors can contribute.
