The Boats 4 Causes program accepts used boat donations and
allows donors to designate a charity of their choice to receive a portion of
the proceeds from the sale of the boat.
Operating as an informal division of Cars 4 Causes since 1997, the boat
program has seen a rise in boat donations over the last year and a half and a
tremendous increase in demand for donated boat sales.
Boat donations since 2009
have risen 62 percent and the average price received per vessel has jumped 20
percent. Overall, funds raised from boat donations have increased 100 percent
during this period. This increase, along with a difference in demographics
between the vehicle and boat donor’s bases, prompted Cars 4 Causes to give the
Boats 4 Causes brand its own platform to appeal to this expanding donor and
Established by America’s first vehicle donation
charity, Cars 4 Causes, the Boats 4 Causes donation program is simple and
straightforward. Donors start the donation process by filling out a donation
form located on the new website or by calling one of Boats 4 Causes’ donation
specialists at 855-800-2628(BOAT). Boats 4 Causes will first determine a vessel’s
suitability for donation. Next, they will work with the donor to evaluate the
vessel’s condition and determine how to best position the boat to maximize the
sale price and net proceeds. Finally, each donated boat will be sold and its
donor will receive the appropriate documentation and forms necessary to claim
their tax donation.
