THE STORY:

 

Capital Goal: $38,000

Operational Goal: $150,000

 

Each year, Discovery World spends up to $500,000 operating the S/V Denis Sullivan and only earns back up to $350,000 from those operations. In addition to annual fundraising campaigns to close that $150,000 operational gap, in 2016 we also seek additional donor support of $38,000 for four capital improvement needs: a rescue boat, a life raft, a second engine for the rescue boat, and five cold water immersion suits. Your S/V Denis Sullivan designated gift will help us keep our most critical safety items up to code, and anything generously donated beyond the cost of those items will help Discovery World cover the S/V Denis Sullivan’s 2016 operational gap.

 

Since her official launch in 2000, our Discovery World Sailing Vessel (S/V) Denis Sullivan has operated as a floating classroom, United Nations Environment Program flagship, and ambassador for the State of Wisconsin. Each year, over 7,000 students, adults, and families cross the S/V Denis Sullivan decks and engage in informative tours, educational day sails, and overnight expeditions. Hands-on freshwater science curriculum is combined with the technical teachings of learning to sail a tall ship, all while gaining a unique perspective of the rich history, culture, industry, and importance of the Great Lakes and our world’s most important natural resource – freshwater.

 

The only replica of a 19th Century three-masted Great Lakes schooner in the world, the S/V Denis Sullivan was built by nearly 1,000 dedicated volunteers who generously gave more than one million hours over five years to see their big vision become a breathtaking reality. The S/V Denis Sullivan embodies the sweat, souls, and spirit of citizens who labored to help build the first tall ship to take shape in Wisconsin during this century and was ultimately designated as Wisconsin’s Flagship. Every time the S/V Denis Sullivan sails, she carries with her the pride of every volunteer, student, visitor, donor, and crew who has supported this remarkable endeavor. It is in large part because of our S/V Denis Sullivan volunteers and donor contributions that Discovery World’s mission of freshwater education has been made possible.
