Giving Tuesday 2021

Donate Today

What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement. Join the movement and donate to Paddle Antrim to help fund our education programs.

How will my gift to Paddle Antrim on Giving Tuesday directly make an impact?

This Giving Tuesday we are raising funds for our education programs. Our education focuses on creating a safe paddling community and educating paddlers to be good stewards of our lakes and rivers. We educate youth and adults the basics of paddling and safety. Our paddle steward classes teach paddlers the basics of identifying and reporting aquatic invasive species.

Through donations like yours we are able to keep our registration fees low for safety classes, lowering barriers for participants. We offer need-based scholarships and free registration for our stewardship classes. Each class takes dedicated staff time to plan and facilitate. In 2021, we engaged with over 75 participants through 9 safety classes and three on-water stewardship trainings. Help us continue to train and engage with paddlers on the water by donating today

Testimonials from our 2021 classes:

“The essentials of kayaking class was so great! I have just been learning to use my new kayak and the class really helped me understand how to efficiently stroke, stop, and turn. I also learned a lot about kayaking safety – things that just weren’t on my radar. I’m looking forward to participating in future classes and community paddles.” – Shanna

“As someone who is a frequent casual paddler but had never received formal instruction, this class was perfect for me! I learned important safety skills in addition to new stroke techniques, and my overall sense of confidence on the water increased dramatically after taking the class. The instructors were patient, extremely knowledgeable, and really took the time to work with each participant one-on-one. I’m excited to take additional classes through Paddle Antrim to further my skills.” – Emily

“Highly recommended! Not only did I paddle away with confidence in my newly acquired essential kayaking skills, I learned the rules of the waterways, gained knowledge of the local water ecology and got to meet and work with great people. Thank you, Paddle Antrim!” – Anonymous
