Make a Donation

Each season, Ferry Sloops welcomes aboard hundreds of people for an exciting experience of sailing on the beautiful Hudson River completely free of charge. For many guests, this opportunity is their first time aboard a sailboat.


In addition to sailing, Ferry Sloops offers free lectures with topics focused on the river and concerts throughout the year at Shattemuc Yacht Club in Ossining.


As the priority has been to keep everyone safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, protocols have resulted in the cancellation of our participation in outreach festivals, as well as, our monthly educational programs and live music performances. Without such events, our organization's efforts to raise funds from new memberships and donations has been severely impacted. 

As an all-volunteer group, every dollar is used for our boat's maintenance & operating expenses in support of free public sailing and programs throughout the season.


We hope you consider making a donation today. It's only with your help that Ferry Sloops can continue to provide education and the inspiration to appreciate, love, and protect the beautiful Hudson River for future generations to enjoy.
