If your organization needs help funding a special project, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to apply for a grant. The BoatUS Foundation awards local volunteer organizations up to $4,000 for the promotion of safe and clean boating education. Over the past 20 years, the foundation has awarded over a million dollars to local community organizations, yacht clubs, flotillas and squadrons. The foundation is looking for creative and innovative projects that promote safe and clean boating on your local waterway. Past topics have ranged from PSAs on the effects of boating under the influence to signs at boat ramps telling users about invasive species in the area and how to prevent them from spreading.
