Every year SAIL allows our new group of sophomores to select a philanthropy of their choice to support during their time in SAIL. This allows our members to directly contribute to a cause they are passionate about as an organization. The following organizations are our most recent philanthropies.
SAIL's 2021-2022 philanthropy coincided with an organization-wide mental health initiative. Child Mind Institute is dedicated to transforming the lives of children and families struggling with mental health and learning disorders by giving them the help they need to thrive. Child Mind Institute was SAIL's philanthropy for the 2021-2022 school year.
Scotty's House Mission is "to provide safety, healing, and justice for children victimized by abuse through professional assessment, counseling, and education in a compassionate and collaborative approach" to children in the Brazos Valley area.
