Regatta artwork and merchandise

The Alliance provides free access to top-notch marine art for members’ use, and we offer members low-cost posters and notecards featuring that artwork to support their efforts to increase revenues or reduce expenses. In 2014, the posters and notecards featured the image of “February 14th,” a painting by the late Willard Bond, to be sold, used in auctions or raffles, or presented as awards or gifts.

Promotion

We also promote member regattas through digital media (including the Alliance’s website and Facebook pages, e-mail newsletters) news releases, advertising, and other communications media. Financial contributions and in-kind support from sponsors are used to cover expenses of Alliance operations, including the costs of programs and services offered to member regattas to enhance their effectiveness.

Information sharing between members

We collect and share information about strategies and practices that contribute to members’ successes in raising funds and awareness for hospice, and we foster the sharing of ideas among our member regattas in the U.S. and Canada. One way we do this is through webinars and discounted access to online technology courses through which members learn about tools and approaches that may help them achieve better results.
