Boat donation program debuts website

Cars 4 Causes added a new website, Boats 4 Causes, for its boat donation program.

The Boats 4 Causes program accepts used-boat donations and allows donors to designate a charity of their choice to receive a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the boat.

Operating as an informal division of Cars 4 Causes since 1997, the boat program has seen a rise in boat donations during the last year and a half and a tremendous increase in demand for donated-boat sales. Boat donations have risen 62 percent since 2009, and the average price received per vessel has jumped 20 percent.

Funds raised from boat donations have increased 100 percent during the period, according to the organization.

“We are excited to launch Boats4Causes.org,” Cars 4 Causes president Patti Palmer said in a statement. “By separately featuring this successful donation program and introducing a dedicated website, we will be addressing the specific needs of our boat donors and furthering our commitment to generate the highest possible tax-deduction value for our donors and the most money for charity from each boat donation sold.”
