Sponsor a Shoal Marker

TIA will designate the “ROCK” marker as sponsored by you and will officially recognize it on our website.

Sponsor a Shoal Marker Program

With water level fluctuations our shoal markers are beginning to be worn out, lost or disappearing. Therefore TIA continues to need more markers, this is an expensive and necessary endeavour to save lives and to promote river safety.

To help support shoal marking, TIA offers a ” Sponsor a Shoal Marker” Program.

For a fully tax deductible $500 donation, TIA will designate the “Rock” marker that you indicate as your supported shoal. 

Sponsorship of your selected shoal shall remain exclusive to you as long as you remain a member in good standing with TIA or if you agree to share with another sponsor.

TIA thanks the following participants of the “Sponsor a Shoal Marker” fundraising Program
