Donating to a true non profit was important to me. If you actually call up these websites you find on the search engines that say they are a charity, many of them really aren't charities. My boat is worth $16,000 and I wanted to make sure that $16,000 was used wisely, and for the purpose of helping someone. I didn't want it to be used to buy some board member a lobster dinner and allow them to give what they felt like to those that truly need the help. You guys explained in detail the different ways Boats with Causes uses the proceeds from each donation to help and I believe you. I don't usually write testimonials but felt this might lend a bit of credibility and somehow prove that Boats with Causes is a legitimate, professional charity. If you are considering donating your boat, please beware of the shady sites out there!
