Respite on the Water
Help us provide a day of respite for
victims of disaster or trauma by donating your boat to our
Respite on the Water
boating program.
How to get the highest tax
deduction for your donation
We accept boats of all sizes and descriptions both sail and power.
When you donate your boat to our organization you can get the full appraised value as a charitable contribution and not just the amount it sells for. Our use of your boat in our “Respite-On-The-Water” program meets the IRS definition of an “intervening use”, which under IRS guidelines allows you to take the full appraised value. Otherwise, if you donate to any organization that does not have an intervening use then you’ll likely be giving the boat to a nonprofit that will just sell the boat. Usually such an organization will work with a third party liquidator that will sell your donated boat at auction. After the fees are paid they'll split the balance with the charity. When this happens, you'll only be able to declare the amount the boat sold for as the charitable contribution. We don’t work that way so regardless of the size, age or value of your boat call us today!

Donating to Respite on the Water is a WIN-WIN situation. You get the maximum tax benefit and your boat serves and helps others. Thank you!
