Donor Boats

Begun in 2004, the Boat Donor Program enables individuals to support the Mathews Maritime Foundation by donating and purchasing donated boats.

Boat donors can claim a tax deduction based on the boat’s sale amount collected by the Foundation. If you wish to donate a boat, complete and mail our Boat Donor Form and we will contact you to arrange transfer of the vessel. You may also contact Dave at (804) 815-4367 or Pete at (804) 693-9335, or via email.
