A donation to the BoatUS Foundation helps keep boaters safe.
‘Give Way’ This Giving Tuesday, Nov. 28 -
Foundation asks boaters to support boating safety, clean water programs
Tuesday, November 28, kick-starts the season of charitable giving. Always
celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber
Monday, this national day of donating also offers boaters ways to give back to
boating. The BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water asks boaters,
sailors and anglers to consider a donation to the boating nonprofit to help
support its efforts to reduce boating accidents and increase stewardship of our
waterways. Tax-deductible donations can be made at www.BoatUS.org/givingtuesday.
“‘Give Way’ to
Giving Tuesday helps recreational boaters understand this is the time of year
to give priority to the things we cherish: safe outings on clean waters,” said
BoatUS Foundation Assistant Director of Boating Safety Ted Sensenbrenner.
the 501(c)(3) Foundation has offered the largest national life jacket loaner
program for kids at more than 575 locations across the United States, the only
free online boating-safety course that’s taken by more than 100,000 boaters
each year and officially recognized by 36 states, and has funded more than $1.3
million in local boating-safety and clean-water grants allowing local communities
to have a positive impact on their own waters.
in Annapolis, Maryland, most of the Foundation’s funding comes directly from
boaters and waterway users. To make a donation this charitable season or learn
