Nautical Donations, Inc. is a non-profit organization that makes it easy to provide support to Chicago area nautical programs through a tax deductible donation of your boat or nautical equipment.
Nautical Donations, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) exempt service representing Chicagoland nautical organizations. We represent these other not-for-profit organizations:
- Chicago Maritime Society
- Chicago Yacht Club Foundation
- Columbia Yacht Club’s Chester Kuttner Foundation
- Judd Goldman Adaptive Sailing Foundation
- Lake Michigan Sail Racing Federation
- Sea Scouts Chicago Area Council #118
Check out the Who We Support tab for more information and links to those organizations.
Nautical Donations, Inc. accepts donations of boats and then sells them or puts them into service with one or more of our charitable organizations. We also accept donations of nautical equipment that is then sold or put into service.
As a donor you can decide which participating organization or organizations will receive the proceeds of your boat donation. The benefit to you as a donor is a tax deduction for the amount that the boat is ultimately sold for under auction.
Every March Nautical Donations, Inc. holds a flea market during Yacht-a-palooza, selling off donated equipment. Yacht-a-palooza is sponsored by Crowley’s Yacht Yard (http://www.crowleys.com/events.html). This is a great opportunity for the boating community to support our organizations. We encourage boaters to clear out their garage or storage locker before the boating season gets underway. The flea market features plenty of great bargains including seldom-used equipment and hard-to-find hardware.
Nautical Donations, Inc. sells donated boats and equipment throughout the year. In the last three years, we sold 25 boats ranging in size from 21’ to 37’. Click our BOATS AND EQUIPMENT FOR SALE tab for links to our current Ebay listings.
