Boat Donation Information
The BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety & Clean Water counts on donations to keep our boating programs afloat. One way to make a difference is to donate your boat or yacht to the only organization dedicated to promoting safe and clean boating.
We will ensure the donation process - from handling the paperwork to picking up the boat - runs smoothly. In addition, donors can be sure that their donation will go to programs that help keep boating a safe and enjoyable pastime for generations to come. Please consider donating your boat or yacht to the BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water and receive the maximum legal tax deduction. We also accept PWCs.
We'd like to hear from you! Call our partner, Certified Sales Inc, at (401) 732-6300 if you have a well loved or gently used boat in good working condition. Working with our partner will ensure that your donation will be maximized to benefit you and the BoatUS Foundation. Potential donations must be titled or documented and free of all encumbrances.
