Donate – Annual Fund

We Need Your Help!

CBC is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. In order to achieve our goals, we must depend on individual support, corporate donations, and public and private grants to help maintain our youth outreach programs, growing fleet, and safe operating facilities. Your donation is tax deductible to the extent provided by law. The Community Boating Center is having an impact far beyond its stated mission. We hope you share our vision, see the possibilities, and will provide the means to help us grow.
