The Inland Lake Yachting Association (ILYA) exists to foster amateur yacht racing competition for youth and adults on the inland lakes of the Midwest. There are many ways to get involved in the organization, from simple membership to active participation as a volunteer at our events or on our Board of Directors and Committees. And of course, donations to our non-profit 501(c)(3) organization are always most welcome and help us provide top quality educationa nd events for the sailing community.
The simplest way to support the ILYA is to become a member and pay your annual dues early in the year. Click Here to join or renew your Annual Membership.
New 2021 ILYA membership levels:
While most ILYA members regularly support our many services through their payment of annual dues, additional support from members with donations above and beyond the dues is appreciated and acknowledged with a three-tiered recognition system which applies each calendar year:
Silver Level Support Recognition is awarded to members who donate $100 or more in addition to their dues.
Gold Level Support Recognition is awarded to members who donate $500 or more in addition to their dues.
Platinum Level Support Recognition is awarded to members who donate $1,000 or more in addition to their dues.
Members making a donation may specify their donation go to any one or a combination of three available funds – General Fund, Promotion Fund, and Foundation General Fund. And you can even make donations to support our ILYA Olympic Athletes through the same secure, online system.
