Welcome! The MVP's training program operates on a year-round basis and is provided free of charge to students and parents. We've learned from our fund raising efforts that donors want to know both the needs... and the cost of sponsorship. This page allows our needs to be known... and it serves as means to recognize those who donate. Please note that immediate needs are listed in red and annual costs are shown in blue. Thank you for your visit.



BOAT RACK AND SAIL STORAGE

A wooden structure must be built to enable small Optis and kayaks to be stored upside down, protected from the elements. The estimated cost of materials, labor and material transport is $3,500.00.
