The BoatUS Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water is asking for donations to help support its efforts to reduce boating accidents and increase waterway stewardship. The organization is calling Nov. 28 “Give Way to Giving Tuesday” to kickstart the season of charitable giving. Since 1981, the 501(c)(3) Foundation has offered the country’s largest life jacket loaner program for kids at more than 575 locations across the United States. It also offers a free online boating safety course that’s taken by more than 100,000 boaters each year 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. Headquartered in Annapolis, Maryland, most of the Foundation’s funding comes directly from boaters and waterway users. For more information, visit www.boatus.org.
