Why Help Us
Today’s consumers are sensitive to and aware of brands that are authentically contributing to social impact and are more likely to buy from those brands. Your brand will be associated in those hearts and minds with Inclusive Adventures activities and mission in powerful images, inspiring videos, news coverage, website, social media, and on our vessel. If you choose to provide us with branded products or materials they will be utilized in our events.
We provide a powerful, motivational story and would love to collaborate with you to share our now mutually inspiring story in your own marketing!

Strategies for Businesses
Receive ~$350 back from the US Government for every $1000 of value you donate to us. To realize a reduction in your taxes for charitable contribution, the total charitable throughout your fiscal year must exceed $1000.
Instead of a donation, pay us for Good Will Association of your Brand with our Mission through Advertising & Promotion. This will show on your books as an Advertising Expense with 100% reduction in taxable income.
Barter Property or an Asset
Instead of donation, barter your Asset at full value with us in exchange for Good Will Association of your Brand with our Mission through Advertising & Promotion. This effectively converts the asset to an Advertising Expense at full value in your books.
Barter your Product or Service, leverage its value 7X, and Improve your Bottom Line!
Instead of an In-Kind donation, barter your Product or Service with us in exchange for Good Will Association of your Brand with our Mission through Advertising & Promotion. This reduces your taxable income by 100% the value of your product or service and will show on your books as an advertising expense.
- Provide us an Invoice Receipt showing the full value of your Product or Service (i.e. $1) minus an Equal Credit for our Promotion (i.e. $1) = $0 owed
- We will email you an Invoice Receipt for our Advertising, Promotion, & Good Will Association of your Brand with our Mission (i.e. $1) equal to the value of your bartered product or service (i.e. $1) = $0 owed
How can this improve my bottom line?
If a product valued at $10,000 costs $1500 to produce 1 more, and the IRS returns $3500 to you, your $2000 ahead! And you increase your annual sales!
How is the value of my Product or Service leveraged 7x?
If you have a product or service that costs you the typical 25% or 50% or even 75% of the $10,000 retail price to produce,
Which we would otherwise need to purchase at retail, but you instead donate it, your incremental cost is $2500 but the value we receive from your donation is $10,000. So the value of the donation is leveraged 4x or by whatever ratio of your increment COGS of produce the next unit.
If we then provide you with $10,000 value by promoting your brand, and provide you with an invoice for that $10,000 of value but credited to $0 in lieu of barter of your product or services also valued at $10,000,
That advertising expense reduces your taxable your taxable income by $10,000.
In comparison, if you donated $10,000 cash, and claimed it as a tax deduction is a contribution to a charity, you would only realize 35% or $3500 reduction in your taxable income.
and the value of the reduction in taxable income is leveraged 3x or a net total of 7x leveraging versus a pure cash donation.
That's a win-win for any nonprofit organization and their sponsor!
Participating in a day cruise with us is FREE. Our board management is 100% volunteer. Most of our crew are volunteers. Our solutions are designed by the disabled for the disabled and predominantly implemented by ourselves mitigating costs and maximizing every dollar.
Of course providing bucket list experiences generally thought to be near impossible is costly. Marina fees, fuel, vessel modifications, and maintenance. However, by keeping operations recreational, non-commercial, and member oriented we should be able to continue to provide experiences at less than 25% of the market rate of $6000-$10,000 per person per week for a river cruise with 8-10 cabins. A private charter being a closer comparison we do even better. We rely solely on your generous donations and support to directly and impactfully change lives and perspectives through the crucible of self-discovery. Adventure provides participants with the rare opportunity and motivation to push beyond our preconceived self-imposed limitations.
We Believe In the Power of Inspiration and the Strength of the Human Spirit
Strong communities are created by valuing the talents of all members and encouraging all members to contribute those talents to the best of their abilities. But why would anyone try to achieve an education or contribute their talents through employment if they believe their only prospect is to sit in front of a television trapped in their own home frequently unable to change the channel or even answer the telephone?
We believe in the power of will, in discovery, and adventure. "I there's a will, there's a way!"
We provide a concrete, un-refutable example, if someone with significant disabilities can live on a boat and circumnavigate the eastern continental United States and Canada why can they not live in their own home in the community. On deeper and broader level we are working to expand public awareness to the social, community, and fiscal benefits of home care as an alternative to nursing home institutionalization!
