Donate a Boat to Charity

Car Donation Wizard can help you donate your boat to your favorite charity! We try to accept all boat donations but we cannot guarantee it will be accepted, as there are some scenarios where a boat costs more to transport than it would sell for at an auction. 

What information is needed for my boat donation?

We require that your boat be out of the water, on a trailer, and that you have the title. We’ll also ask for the following information:

  • The boat’s year, make, model
  • Your name, email, and phone number
  • Photos of the boat
  • Does it have a trailer?
  • How much do you think it’s worth?
  • Can you drop it off at a local auction facility?
  • Would you be okay with accepting an under $500 tax receipt?

If your boat meets our criteria, we’ll gladly accept it on behalf of your charity. If you have any questions about donating a boat, call us at 877-957-2277.

We’re always looking out for boats of unusually high value or notoriety, such as classic wooden boats. If accepted, we require that your boat be cleaned out and ready to go. If it is possible for you to drop your boat off at a designated location, we would greatly appreciate it. Towing your boat for us can save on costs and return more to your charitable cause. Once accepted, ownership documents will be necessary, per your state’s regulations, so we can lawfully process your donation.

Visit our charity selection page to find out more about the amazing organizations you can donate a boat to such as: the American Cancer Society, Habitat for Humanity, UNICEF USA, NPR and more! When you donate a boat, it is eligible for a tax deduction.
