Jim, I am a senior at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs. They just recently started a kayaking club, but it is not really recognized by our school b/c of lack of members, which leads to no real funding. From what I am told by our campus outdoor rec cooridnator, we do not have any kayaks for others to learn in. ( We have our own, but that's it) We are having to rent out kayaks from Christy Sports here in the springs, or really, having those that want to learn to kayak, rent the kayaks and all the equipment needed.
I'm not sure if you'd consider this a worthy charitable organization, as I cannot guarantee that students will take advantage of having these kayaks part of our outdoor program. Just Recently, our campus had a "Club Fair" and about 30 students signed up to be part of the kayak club, wanting to learn how to kayak and/or wanting to be part of a local paddling community.
If you would like to contact someone at our campus Rec Center here is the number: 719-262-7515. If possible, ask for Tim, he's one of the main guys in charge of the Kayaking Club and Outdoor Activites. He's also a member of the Pikes Peak Whitewater Club.
