Everyone’s life has changed as a result of the Coronavirus, but boating can still be a wonderful activity to participate in while practicing social distancing. The Sea Tow Foundation wants to encourage you to get out on the water and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine, but we ask that you do it safely and legally.
Our programs work to prevent recreational boating accidents and fatalities. Thanks to the generous donations of the boating community, we’re able to connect you with the resources and tools you need to keep boating safe and fun for you and everyone aboard
Here is how you can help keep our programs free for recreational boaters.
July begins the Sea Tow Foundation’s summer appeal. By supporting the Sea Tow Foundation with a donation, you are helping to prevent boating under the influence and drowning, ensuring that every day on the water is great. Did you know alcohol use is the leading known contributing factor in fatal boating accidents AND that the majority of people who drown are not wearing life jackets?
You can make a difference today.
With your help, the Sea Tow Foundation can continue to promote safe boating practices in a fun and educational way that directly reduces accidents, deaths and property damage related to recreational boating.
The Sea Tow Foundation’s Sober Skipper Program is a proactive effort that asks boaters to be or designate a sober skipper before leaving the dock to prevent boating under the influence. Our Life Jacket Loaner Program makes life jackets available in all sizes nationwide for the public to borrow and return free of charge to help prevent drowning.
The Sea Tow Foundation does not receive dedicated funding and your help is very important.
Please consider donating to the Sea Tow Foundation today. Your donation is used to help maintain and keep our programs free as a vital resource for recreational boaters in over 600 boating communities across the United States. Since 2008, our family-friendly materials, informative website, volunteers and staff have all been supported by your generous donations.
You can make a one-time or recurring donation online at boatingsafety.com/donatetoday or you can mail a check to Sea Tow Foundation, P.O. Box 1325, Southold, NY 11971.
The Sea Tow Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity and your donation is tax deductible.
Thank you in advance for your support to keep our programs free for recreational boaters.
