Make a Yacht Donation to Veteran Car Donations
We have many years of charitable experience and a history of collaboration with veteran nonprofit organizations. These include the American Veterans Relief Program, Special Operators Transition Foundation, Soldiersâ€™ Angels and more. When you generously donate your vessel to us, we auction if off and then use the funds to support these programs. These nonprofit organizations are then able to provide veterans and their families with housing, scholarships, grief counseling and other assistance.
