Can We Count On You to Help Make Our Great Lakes Safer?

For Water Safety Month, we invite you to be a part of our “Safer Lakes ~ Greater Lakes” giving campaign.

Why GIve?
Because drowning is the leading cause of accidental injury death in kids 1-4 and the second in kids under 15. Nearly 750 people have drowned in the Great Lakes this decade – more than 100 tragedies last year alone. We know why and what to do, and we need your help.

Be a part of our growing community helping people SAFELY enjoy the Great Lakes, with an ultimate vision of ending drowning. We appreciate all forms of your generosity, including joining our growing community of water safety champions, volunteering on one or more of our amazing Action Committees, or making a one-time or monthly donation of any amount.

And, if you donate $50 or more to our lifesaving work, you will receive this exclusive T-shirt with 6th grader Lauryn Dewhurst’s clever “You’re Not A Fish, So Wear Your Lifejacket” winning poster design, shown above.

Know that your donation will directly support our proven and future drowning prevention efforts, including:

  • Providing lifejackets that kids and adults may borrow while at the beach
  • Equipping rescue stations so drowning victims can be quickly saved
  • Reaching water lovers where they live on social media with digital ads
  • Funding water safety training programs in schools, planning educational pop-up events, and advocating for lifeguards
  • Warning people of rip currents and other dangers with beach warning signage
  • Promoting innovative ideas like awesome flotation-delivering drones

Of course, all of these lifesaving efforts cost money so we are asking for your generosity in the form of a donation to our Safer Lakes ~ Greater Lakes giving campaign by filling out the form above.

Every donation matters, so for as little as $15 or $5 a month, we will send you some of our Stay Safe, Don't Drown, Here's How brochures to distribute, our exclusive member bumper stickers, and at least one surprise. Please donate today. Thank you.

P.S. Please use the social media sharing buttons under the DONATE button above to tell your networks about your support of the Great Lakes Water Safety Consortium, and spread the word about how you are helping people SAFELY enjoy the Great Lakes.
