NMBA makes donation to BoatU.S. Foundation

The National Marine Bankers Association recently donated $5,000 to the BoatU.S. Foundation.

"We feel the BoatU.S. Foundation is a very worthy organization. They spend money responsibly to promote stewardship of America's waterways and make boating safe and enjoyable," said Mike Smith, representing the association's board.

Smith praised the foundation for its Children's Life Jacket Loaner Program (now established in all 50 states, with more than 500 active sites); the EPIRB rental program, which has saved 63 lives to date; and more than $1 million awarded through boating safety and clean-water grassroots grant programs since 1997.

"With this donation, the NMBA gives back to the industry and customers it serves, and we greatly appreciate their generosity," BoatU.S. Foundation president Ruth Wood said. "These funds will go to support programs and projects that touch boaters nationwide."
