Every Donation is Tax Deductible.   Dragon boat paddling is an expensive sport due to equipment maintenance and travel required for competitors.  While our season fees help cover some costs, such as steers fees and scholarships, we need support from the community to help our paddlers have access to human-powered water sports team & camaraderie benefits and let’s be honest to be competitive.  

We accept donations via Venmo and Chase QuickPay. Below are the links:
