Considering that most boat owners have disposable income, they are much more likely to be in the middle-to-upper income tax brackets, thus a tax deduction would be appealing to them. Boat donations have risen in popularity throughout the US, most likely through increasing overall awareness among those who previously hadn’t heard that the option is available.
There are many organizations in the US now accepting vehicle donations, which include boats. Different boats are made out of different materials, which can impact their functionality and lead them to be donated later.
What are boats made out of?
Overall, there is not a single, superior material for new boat construction; rather it depends on the type of boat that is being produced and the functions that the vessel is used for, along with the affordability and availability of materials. Several materials have traditionally been the primary material used to manufacture the bodies of boats, each with their own set of positive and negative attributes.
Donate sailboat (all types!)
Rawhide will accept boat donations regardless of the material it's made out of. Rawhide is a faith-driven, non-profit, organization in Wisconsin that provides assistance with both residential care and mental health treatment options for troubled youth.
The group was founded in 1965 and received support from Bart Starr, the Super Bowl winning quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. Rawhide estimates that over 80% of the funds derived from vehicle donations they process go directly to their programs that benefit children in need of assistance.
