The YMCA is looking for new or old boats (sail, power, dinghy, kayak, canoe, skiffs, rowing shells, surf boards and just about anything that floats) or marine items that individuals would like to donate for a tax write-off. Someone from the Y will stop by and make sure it is suitable, and arrange for transportation at no expense to the donor!
The Boat Auction's success is due mainly to boat donations by private owners and through personal referrals. The YMCA will pay a 10% Finder's Fee (defined as 10% of the actual selling price) to anyone who helps locate a boat that is donated to the Boat Auction. The boat owner can claim the selling price as a tax deduction.
To donate a boat or for more information, please contact Marcia Roberts, YMCA Development Director, at 207.236.3375 or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
