The American Boat and Yacht Council Foundation announced its year-end giving appeal in support of educational projects and programs not typically funded by ABYC's annual budget.

This year, the foundation's goal is to raise $100,000 in six weeks.

"Although this has been an extremely challenging financial year for all of us, the foundation truly needs industry and friends to respond to this drive," said Skip Burdon, the foundation's secretary, in a statement.

"That's why I'm humbly requesting that each of our members, friends and partners respond with a minimum contribution of $25," he added. "It's this kind of all-inclusive industry team response that is needed to reach our goal of raising $100,000 in just six short weeks."

As an added challenge to industry, an anonymous donor has committed to match up to $15,000 of the total gifts received before Dec.15. Any donation of $1,000 or more will receive worldwide recognition with placement of the organization's logo on the foundation's Web page for a year, and any donation of more than $500 will receive recognition in the foundation's technical professional quarterly journal, Reference Point.
