Give the gift of water safety & drowning prevention this holiday season! Why not give a non-traditional gift with a life-saving purpose? Let your loved ones, employees, customers, or corporate partners know you thought of them by choosing one of the water safety and drowning prevention gifts below and donating in their honor. There is a gift and price range for everyone on your list!
$1000 – Legacy Giving to Colin’s Hope
Please join our family of Legacy Level donors by supporting our year-round water safety and drowning prevention at the $1000 giving level. Funds given at this level will help Colin’s Hope and our incredible team to continue developing and providing high-quality water safety and drowning prevention programming every day of the year.
$500 – Be a DrowningIsPreventable.org Champion
This donation level will help Colin’s Hope continue to run our NEW curriculum website (www.drowningispreventable.org) so that we can bring our proven Water Safety With Colin & Friends curriculum to children and families in any classroom, camp, or home. The curriculum lessons focus on 5 key rules that can help children make safer choices around all types of water, such as waiting for an adult before going in or near water and wearing a life jacket. The curriculum includes activities, songs, water safety games, and even a science experiment. The program is evidence-based, evaluated for efficacy, and proven with statistical significance to increase children’s water safety knowledge! This is truly a gift that keeps on giving by encouraging educational ripples of positive cultural change.
$100 – Sponsorship of Water Safety & Swim Lessons for One Child
Colin’s Hope has been a long-time provider of water safety programs across Central Texas. Our Water Safety with Colin & Friends collaboration has been a successful example of our programs. Your $100 donation can fuel this education initiative by providing 1 child with swim lessons through a local swim provider and water safety lessons from our Water Safety With Colin & Friends Curriculum. Colin’s Hope works year-round with generous community partners to share this course with children and their families at little to no cost. Honor your loved one and gift a child in the community at the same time!
$50 – 2 Life Jackets For Our Life Jacket Loaner Stations
Life jackets are essential drowning prevention tools. Your donation can help Colin’s Hope provide infant, child, youth, or adult life jackets to one of many waterfront Life Jacket Loaner Stations, like the brand-new station arriving at McKinney Falls in 2023! These stations allow lake visitors to borrow a jacket on the honor system and enjoy a safer day on the water. Gift life jackets today and they may end up at McKinney Falls or one of our other sponsored loaner stations: Map of Life Jacket Loaner Stations
$25 – Recurring Monthly – Continuous Life-Saving Education
Why limit your gift-giving to a single day? Let your loved ones know you are thinking of them 365 days a year by choosing a recurring donation as their gift. No amount is too big or small. Every dollar donated to Colin’s Hope is stretched to its maximum potential so that children and families we interact with every day walk away with greater water safety knowledge and the potential to prevent future drownings. Your recurring donation can help reach families beyond our backyard and keep the important work we do alive. Consider spreading your love as you spread your gift across every month of the year.
