Thank you to all of the generous sponsors, advertisers, donors, and volunteers that made this year's Benefit Gala a success! Your gift to the New England Science & Sailing Foundation makes a powerful impact. 

Your support enables us to bring our ocean adventure programs to underserved communities, where children may not have access to these kinds of opportunities, and to expand horizons for all children regardless of their ability to pay.  It encourages children to learn while having fun.


NESS’s ocean adventure programs engage students in experiential learning that builds confidence, teamwork, and leadership skills.  Our NESS SEA program (an AmeriCorps program) takes NESS into local schools to provide students with additional support, mentoring, and tutoring during the school day.  AmeriCorps members also design and implement STEM-based programs utilizing marine science, adventure sports and sailing as the educational platform. NESS makes education relevant to students and prepares them for college and careers.


NESS is able to provide these opportunities to our students because of our generous donors. As a 501(c)(3), NESS relies on financial contributions from individuals and organizations that believe in our mission, vision, and values. We hope that you will consider a gift to NESS in your philanthropic plans this year
