Sponsorships, free/trade gear and/or raising funds

What are teams doing to raise money for expenses, boat repairs, etc.? I have paid for 2016 race, acquired a boat in sailable condition and have enough epoxy and glass to make immediate, necessary structural repairs but am curious what others are doing to raise funds to go North. My boat, an Etchells 22, is in need of a reefable mainsail, and storm jib that are both beyond my means (I'm disabled and have less than $100/mo disposable income). I have a solid main used for local racing that could be modified to add a 40% and 60% reef but need approximately $600 to make it happen… Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks! Team Hanging On
